A loan helped a member to buy more rice, maize flour, and beans to sell at her store.


Twiyubake Cb Group's story

Felecitee is 36 years old, married, and has two children, ages 10 and 12. Her husband is a farmer. For the past seven years, Felecitee has managed a grocery store.

She is the leader of the group named Twiyubake CB (which means “build ourselves” in English). The group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Felecitee will use her loan to buy more rice, maize flour, and beans to sell in her community. With the profit from her sales, she hopes to purchase a car. She is grateful for the support of the lenders.

Due to the global pandemic, Urwego was not able to get a photograph of all of the group members. For this reason, a photograph of only one representative was taken.

In this group: Cecile, Innocent, Vincent, Ibrahim, Celestin, Jean, Venantie, Beatha, Damascene, Jean, Martin, Anastase, Emmanuel, Joseph, Augustin, Jean, Nyirindekwe, Joseph, Augustin, Jmv, Narcisse, Athanase, Gervain, Eric, Jean, Jeremie, Joseph, Felecitee, Francois, Jean, Medard, Oscar, Antoine, Emmanuel, Jean, Theodosie, Andre, Vincent, Berancilla, Olive


This loan is special because:

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