C4352 Berwa Group's story

Vincent is 49 years old, married with 3 children aged between 10 and 15 years of age. He also takes care of 1 dependent from another family who is 11 years old. Vincent is the president of a group called “Berwa”. This group operates a sewing business in Kimironko which is in Kigali, Rwanda's capital city. Berwa employs 9 people and this is its 3rd successful year in operation. The members of Berwa start their work day at 7 AM and work to 8 PM every day except Sunday.

This group is requesting its first loan from Vision Finance Company and Kiva lenders in order to purchase additional sewing machines to increase their capacity. With this loan, Berwa will sew other attractive clothing styles for sale as well as additional sizes and colors. Through the use of this loan, this group hopes to attract more customers to its business and hopefully earn more profit in the process. Any additional funds earned will go to support their families and loved ones.

In this group: Vincent, Beatrice, Agnes, Josephine, Ignace, Florien
