Dusabane Group's story

Theresie is 44 years old and married to a stone mason. She has five children who are between six and twenty-four years old. Two of her children attend school, but others have failed to continue due to lack of school fees. Theresie is a group leader of a borrowing group called Dusabane in Kinyarwanda which means share together in English.

The group members all have different businesses at the marketplace which is not far from their residential places. Theresie sells a variety of items in her shop such as rice, maize flour, sugar, soft drinks, and many more. She has been doing this business for a period of eighteen years. Since her business is prospering, she decided to request this loan to add more merchandise to sell, and she believes that the profit from this business will be used to re-invest in her business, because she needs to expand her business to the extent of becoming a wholesaler in the future.
