Igihozo Cb Group's story

Yvone is a 44-year-old mother of four children aged 16 and 22 years old. Her husband is a businessman, and for the past ten years, she has owned a grocery store.

Yvone happens to be the leader of the group named Igihozo Cb Group, which in English means “comforting sound”.

Group members, who will share in this loan, sell different items and own a variety of businesses within and outside their community.

Yvone will use her loan to increase her stock by buying more soap, rice, sugar, and cooking oil so that she can sell within her community. She hopes the profits from her sales will allow her to increase her savings and improve her family's living standards.

She is thankful for your support.
