A loan of $4,400 helps a member to buy more women's and children's clothes.


Susuruka Tumba Cb Group's story

Dephine is 35 years old and married with four children aged between 4 and 12 years. Her husband is a technician. For the past ten years, she has been selling clothes.

Dephine is the leader of the group named Susuruka Tumba Cb, which means “Be happy” in English. Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Dephine will use her loan to buy more women's and children's clothes to sell in her community. With the profits from her sales she will pay school fees for their children and put away some savings.

She is thankful for your support.

Due to the global pandemic, Urwego was not able to photograph all the members, but was able to get one representative for the group photo.

In this group: Siborurema, Mukeshimana, Dephine, Olive, Cansilde, Emmanuel, Theogene, Jean, Ntamahungiro, Valens, Therese, Jean, Xavier


This loan is special because:

It provides financial opportunities to riskier Rwandan entrepreneurs who rely on social collateral.
