A loan of $4,325 helps a member buy more salt, sugar and soap.


Tuzamurane Acb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda,

Jeanette is 35 years old with four children between 4 and 15 years old. Her husband is a farmer. Over the past eleven years, Jeanette has owned a shop.

Jeanette is leader of the TUZAMURANE ACB group (which means "Help each other" in English). Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Jeanette will use her loan to buy more salt, sugar and soap to sell in her community. She plans to use her profits from the business to pay school fees for their children.

Jeanette is thankful for your support,

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

In this group: Mukamuganga, Alleruya, Claudette, Jeanette, Bernadette, Marie, Mukagakire, Angelique, Christine, Umurerwa, Frotune, None


This loan is special because:

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