A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy solar energy components to resell.


Famille Bashonga Group's story

In 2003, when Bashonga started his small business, he began selling appliances before adding some solar energy equipment later. The sales have been in cash to his great satisfaction. This allows him to needs the many needs of his family. Only a few cases of theft and the exchange rates have destabilized this. Nevertheless he would like to have a large store filled with solar energy components to sell wholesale and then open other branches in his area.
