A loan of $4,200 helped a member to buy fertilizers and pay for labour.

Abakundisuka Group's story

Albert S. is a rice cultivator in Ruhuha sector, a member of Abakundisuka group, and has been a customer of Kiva's partner, ACB, since 2009. He's 31 years old, married, and has three children, aged 2 to 8. One of them attends school.

Albert was born in Bugesera, in Rwanda, and attended elementary school. He is seeking his third loan from ACB, and his repayment history is very good. He will use his loan to buy fertilizers, and to pay for labor.

His strategy for growing the group's business is its members' unity, living in the same agglomeration, fighting poverty by working restlessly, and valorizing rice cultivation in his region.

He would like to own machines to help him with his activity, and at least one cow for each member of the group. For his family and himself, he would like to have a cow to provide milk to the family members, send his children to school, and feed his family in a decent manner.
