A loan helped a member to buy more sorghum.


Girimpuhwe Cb Group's story

Vestine is a 52-year-old mother of five children who are aged between 17 and 28 years old. Her husband is a construction worker, and for the past 10 years, she has been selling foodstuffs.

Vestine is the leader of Girimpuhwe Cb, which in English means “having mercy." Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Vestine will use her loan to buy more sorghum to sell in her community to meet customer demand. With the profits from her sales, she hopes to be able to increase her savings culture.

Vestine is thankful for your support.
