Tugirubumwe Group's story

Beatrice is a potato farmer and is a member of the Tugirubumwe group. She was born in Rwanda and is 51 years old. She is married and has eight children from 12 to 22 years old, of whom seven are studying. She has six years of primary school education.

This is her first loan from ACB. She is going to use her loan to buy 200kg of potatoes for sowing, 100 liters of water and six kilos of fertilizer, as well as to pay for labor.

Her strategy for growing her business is to increase the amount of land for her potato farming business by buying other fields. In the coming years Beatrice would like to become a large distributor of potatoes in her area. With the profits she makes she is planning to pay her children's education fees to university level.
