A loan helped a member to buy more inventory and be in possession of a sufficient stock of ripe banana.


Duterimbere Group's story

Alexandre is 59 years old, married and the father of four children, all of whom are in school already. He is very attached to the well being of his family, and always he wants to improve his family's life standards.

Alexandre sells sorghum juice he makes from fresh sorghum. With 11 years’ experience in this field, he has no other employee. Because he is a hard-working father, he can handle all duties.

Alexandre expands his business gradually, but his lack of capital prevents him from reaching his sales target and slows his profits. This is the reason why he is requesting this loan, so that he can buy more inventory and be in possession of sufficient stock of ripe banana for sale and also for making sorghum juice to sell as well. He will then increases his sales, which will increase his revenues too. The benefices generated by this loan will be utilized to repair his business house.

This is Alexandre’s 13th loan cycle with VisionFund Rwanda, for now his family living conditions have improved. Therefore, Alexandre is truly thankful towards the Kiva lenders for allowing to offer him this loan.
