A loan helped a member to buy more beer and wine for her business.

Menyankumenye Cb Group's story

Janviere is a 34-year-old mother of 4 children aged between 5 and 14 years old. Her husband is a businessman, and for the past seven years, she has owned a liquor store. She is the leader of the Menyankumenye Cb Group, which means “Let's get close to one another” in English. The group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

Janviere will use her portion of the loan to buy more beer and wine to sell in her community. With the profit from her sales, she will be able to buy some livestock and a piece of land in the near future.

Janviere is grateful for the support from lenders.
