Urumuri Cb Group's story

Sifa is a 39-year-old mother of three children aged 5 to 12 years. Her husband is a businessman, and for the past seven years, she has been selling foodstuffs.

Sifa is the leader of the group named URUMURI CB, which in English means “Light.” Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses within and outside their community.

Sifa will use her loan to buy more plantains so she can sell them within her community. She hopes the profits from her sales will enable her to grow her business and also provide for the family.

Sifa is thankful for your support.
