Intwari Cb 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 women's clothes to sell.

Intwari Cb Group's story

Berne is 41 years old and the mother of three children between the ages of 8 and 15. Her husband is a civil servant, and for the past six years she has been selling clothes.

Berne is the leader of the group called INTWARI CB group, which in English means “HEROES”. Group members, who will share in this loan, sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Berne will use her loan to buy more women's clothes to sell within her community. With the profits from her sales, she will put away some money as savings and also provide for her family. Berne is thankful for your support.
