A loan helped a member to buy more children's clothes to sell.


Duhahirane Cb Group's story

Alphonsine is a 49-year-old widowed mother of three children, aged between 16 and 24 years old. For the past nineteen years, she has been selling clothes.

Alphonsine is the leader of the Duhahirane Cb Group, which means “Let's support each other to grow business” in English. Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Alphonsine will use her loan to buy more children's clothes to sell within her community in order to meet customer demand. With the profits from her sales, she will be able to furnish her rentals.

Alphonsine is thankful for your support.
