Ejoheza Group's story

“Ejoheza” (meaning a bright future in the Kinyarwanda language) is a group of 30 clients. They sell different things. Some sell second-hand clothes, food crops, or fruit and others have bars. Olive (raising a hand in the photo) is the group president. She has a shop in which she sells items such as salt, soap, sugar, etc. Olive is 45 years old; she has three children who are between the ages of 17-21 years old.One of her children is in school while the other two stopped their studies after their six primary grades because she couldn’t afford their school fees. Olive sells bicycle spare parts and she is requesting a loan to buy more spare parts and fill her store in order to make more profits. With the profits she hopes to open up a wholesale shop. She has been in this business for three years and she finds it interesting because it enables her to cover most of her home expenses. Most of the other group members wish to reinvest in their businesses.
