A loan of $1,500 helps a member to purchase and sell onions and tomatoes for the well-being of her family.


Birhashwira Group's story

With already twenty years of experience in small business, Colette sells red onions and tomates for the survival of her family. This business is her source of economy because she buys and grows onions and tomatoes at the same time.

She is independent thanks to this business because she does not lack food for her children.

She thinks that with the support of PAIDEK, she will be able to further improve her business and the heath of her family more.
