He belongs to a solidarity group called ABUNZUBUMWE NO 2. The members of this group are farmers who mutually guarantee each other. Simeon and his group work to improve their families’ living conditions and send their children to school. The group has contracted a loan within the Amasezerano Community Banking association to purchase the goods necessary to their business and sell them. Part of the profit is reinvested in order to maintain the financial stability of the group and save money in order to prepare for a good future.
