A loan helped a member to buy more sorghum to sell.


Icyizere Musenyi Group's story

Julienne is a 38-year-old married mother of 2 children. She is very concerned about the well-being of her children and always works harder to improve their living conditions.

Julienne sells sorghum and makes a local drink from sorghum. With 3 years of experience in this field and with one employee, she is constantly challenged by the dry season. Nevertheless, she has gradually expanded her business, but her lack of capital prevents her from reaching her sales targets and slows her profit growth. This is the reason why she is requesting this loan, in order to buy more sorghum then increase her sales as well. The profits generated by this loan will be used to pay for her children's school fees.

Additionally this is Julienne’s third loan cycle with Visionfund Rwanda, plus she is the Icyizere Musenyi group leader. Therefore, Julienne is deeply thankful towards the Kiva lenders for offering her this loan.
