Abishyizehamwe Group's story

Thérèse Mukandenzi is a corn farmer and merchant, and she has been a client of ACB since 2008. She is 54 years old and married. Born in Rwanda, she has four children, aged 16 to 22; all of them go to school. Thérèse finished five years of primary schooling.

This loan is her first cycle with ACB. She is going to use her loan to buy 5 kg of corn and to pay for labor. Her strategy for business growth is to improve her arable land and her yields.

Thérèse would like to become a major grower in the Rubavu district, to ensure her family's well-being, and always to cover her children's schooling costs.
