Birashoboka Group's story

Dancile B. is 36. She is married and the mother of 6 children of whom four are girls. The oldest girl is 13 and studies in 7th grade. The youngest is a boy of 11 months. Dancile hopes that her children will finish their studies successfully and that they will be leaders. She has done so much for them so she hopes one day to be driven around town in their car and treated like a queen.

In her everyday life, she runs up against challenges relative to feeding the family, paying school fees, and paying for medicine for her eyes. The money she earns is enough to support them thanks to the business she began in the year 2000.

Since then, Dancile has been the owner of a kiosk in Gihosha where she sells groceries and various other items. The most lucrative are dried beans, palm oil, and sugar. She also grows beans, maize, sweet potatoes, and manioc. She will use the loan to buy products to sell in her little store.
