A loan of $4,650 helps a member to buy more Irish potatoes, rice, meat and cooking oil.


Amahirwe B Group's story

Beatrice is a 29-year-old mother of two children, aged 4 and 9 years old. Her husband is a business man, and for the past five years, she has owned a restaurant.

Beatrice is the leader of the group named AMAHIRWE B, which in English means “Blessed People”. Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses within the community and outside their community.

Beatrice will use her loan to stock up her business by buying more Irish potatoes, rice, meat and cooking oil so that she can sell within her community. She hopes the profits from her sales will allow her to increase savings and improve her family's living standards. In future, Beatrice plans to grow her business.

She is thankful for your support.

This loan is special because:

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