A loan helped a member use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer.


Abahizi Tcb Group's story

Marie is 32 years old and the mother of three children between the ages of 3 and 9 years old. Her husband is a motorcyclist, and for the past eight years, she has been selling fertilizer.

Marie is the leader of the group ABAHIZI TCB, which means “trusted people” in English. The group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

She will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer to sell within her community. With the profit from her sales, she will be able to set aside some savings and expand her business.

She is grateful for the support from the lenders.
