Abahuzamugambi Group's story

Abahuzamugambi Group is the name of a group of entrepreneurs near the Nyabiheke refugee camp, which is one of the six refugee camps in Rwanda. Abahuzamugambi is a Kinyarwanda name that means "having the same purpose" in English.

The members of this group are Pelagie, Mary, Judith, Joyce, John, Jean Baptiste, Janet, Immaculee, Delphine, Claudine, Cesarie, Berthilde, and Annonciatha. They all started their businesses very small, but now the businesses have developed, and they are ready to take a group loan so they can get their operations to the next level. In fact, Abahuzamugambi was formed for the purpose of sharing ideas and saving together so that they can improve their businesses, so they support each other in their aspirations for growth.

Pelagie is one of the members of the Abahuzamugambi Group. She is a wife and a mother of five. Her food stall business allows her to support her family. She started the business with a capital of RWF 20,000 from her savings. Over the years, the business has grown and she engaged in livestock and agriculture which also contributes to the development of her family.

Pelagie is requesting working capital to purchase more inventory for her food stall business so that she can meet customer demand. This infusion of capital will get the shop to the next level, and she has the support of the other members of the lending group to ensure that they can support each other as their businesses grow.
