A loan helped a member to refinance debt and buy products to stock her general store.


Tekoporave Rekavo Group's story

The group called "Tekoporave Rekavo" was formed by the union of hard-working women who are seeking the way to be able to offer their loved ones everything they need for a better quality of life so that they do not want for anything.

One of the members who makes an effort to be able to give her family the best is Maria who, as well as being one of the members, is also the president. She always tries to help her colleagues with everything. She mentions that she has her own business, which is a general store where she offers all kinds of products to her clients. She says that her sales have been reduced by the Covid-19 pandemic and this has also affected her income.

She asked for this loan to be able to refinance her debt and also to be able to obtain more products to be able to offer her customers and, in this way, continue with her sales and raise her business up.
