Ibakwe Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more inventory and have sufficient stock of merchandise to sell.

Ibakwe Group's story

Theodette is 40 years old, married, and has four young children. She is very kind and popular among her neighbors.

For the past two years she has owned a small retail shop selling rice, beans, sugar, vegetables, soaps, and other basic goods without an employee; because she is a hardworking woman she can handle all duties alone,

Theodette is aiming to expedite her business but she is constantly challenged with the lack of capital so she is requesting this loan in sequence to have capital and buy more inventory to have sufficient stock of merchandise to sell.

The profits generated by this loan will be saved and utilized to pay her children's school fee and medical assurance. This is her first loan cycle with VisionFund Rwanda.

Consequently, Theodette is sincerely grateful towards the Kiva lenders for allowing her this loan so that she can expand her business and improve her family's living conditions.
