Abarwanashyaka Group's story

Consolee is 44 years old, married and has five children who range from 14 to 22 years old. She is married to a farmer.

Consolee is a group leader of a borrowing group called Abarwanashyaka, which means "The Pioneers" in English. The group members sell different items and they have organized themselves to get this loan, which they assume will be helpful in their business.

Consolee sells beans and drinks. With the help of her colleagues, she requested this loan to buy more beans and drinks to sell. She has been selling these items for a period of eight years. She says the profits she hopes to get will be used to pay school fees and renovate her house. She wishes to raise her loan amount to 300,000 in the future.
