A loan of $2,550 helps a member by buying more sweet potatoes.


Abishyizehamwe Tcb Group's story

Xaveline is a 52-year-old mother of six children ages 13 and 31 years. Her husband is a farmer, and for the past twenty years she has been selling foodstuffs in her community trying to make ends meet.

She is the leader of the group named Abishyizehamwe Tcb, which in English means “People who joined together.” Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses within the community and outside their community.

Xaveline will use her loan in stocking up her business by buying more sweet potatoes so that she can sell within her community. She hopes with the profits from her sales she will be able to save and also provide for the family. She is thankful for your support.

Due to the global pandemic, Urwego was not able to get a photograph of all the group members. Xaveline is serving as the group representative.

In this group: Xaveline, Theoneste, Jean, Joel, Jean, Florence, Thacienne, Asterie, Ntambara, Christine, Olive, Floride, Germaine, Stephanie, Mutesiwase, Clemantine, Daniel, Eugenie, Anisie, Beatrice, Esperance, Clementine, Florence, Viriginie, Florence


This loan is special because:

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