Kundumurimo Cb Group's story

Emmerence is a 40-year-old mother of six children aged 3 to16 years. Her husband is a farmer, and for the past ten years she has owned a grocery store.

Emmerence is the leader of the group called Kundumurimo Cb (which in English means “people who love work”). Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Emmerence will use her loan to buy more rice, soap, cooking oil and salt to sell in her community to meet customer demand. With the profits from her sales, she hopes to buy a piece of land. She is thankful for your support.
