Abahujimbaraga A Group's story

Théoneste Ndayambaje was born in Ruhuha, in Eastern Rwanda. He is 30 years old and married with three children. The eldest is 8 years old, and the youngest is 5. He attended primary school. He and his family live in Ruhuha-Bugesera. One of the children goes to school. He is a member of ABAHUJUMUTIMA A, a solidarity group of rice farmers who guarantee each other’s loans. Théoneste and his group work to support their families, to improve their living conditions, and to pay for the children’s tuition fees. The group took out a loan with Amasezerano Community Banking to buy the chemical fertilizers needed for their fields. After the harvest, part of the crop will be sold, and another portion will be used to support the members’ families.
