A loan helped a member to buy cooking utensils and solar panels to resell.


Sifa Group's story

Vumilia needs a new loan because after reimbursing the prior loan, her working capital suddenly got used up, especially because of having to pay for medical care.

The money she receives will be used for the sale of kitchen utensils and solar panels. Except for those medical expenses, the prior loan certainly helped the family to have enough food and the children's school fees to be covered.

In this group: Vumilia, Tafuteni

This loan is special because:

It gives woman-owned small businesses in the impoverished Sud-Kivu region access to financial services and training.
