but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more beans and Irish potatoes.

Tujyinama Cb Group's story

Ernestine is a 49-year-old mother of five children who are between 5 and 26 years old. Her husband is a farmer. For the past 15 years, she has been selling foodstuffs.

Ernestine is the leader of the group named Tujyinama Cb Group, which in English means “Let us advise each other". Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Ernestine will use her loan to buy more beans and Irish potatoes to sell in her community and to meet customer demand. With the profits from her sales, she hopes to be able to provide for the family and provide school fees for the children.

Ernestine is thankful for your support.
