Amahoro Acb Group's story

Alice is a 40-year-old mother of five children who are between 11 and 20 years old. Her husband is a motorist, and for the past ten years she has owned a grocery store.

She is the leader of the group called Amahoro Acb, which in English means “Peace.” Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Alice will use her loan to buy more maize flour, bread, cooking oil and salt 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 also buy a piece of land to grow plantains.

Alice is thankful for your support.

Due to the global pandemic, Urwego was not able to get a photograph of all the group members. The photograph is of Alice, the group representative.
