Dukore Twitezimbere Group's story

Drocelle (the third woman from the left, with the red jumper) is part of the group Dukore Twitezimbere. Born in Rwanda, she is 46 years old and is married with 5 children between the ages of 7 and 25, two of whom go to school. She herself has 7 years of primary school education. Drocelle is a farmer and this is her first loan cycle with ACB. She will use the loan to buy 300 kgs of potatoes and a 30-liter bag of NPK fertilizer, and to pay the labourers. Over the next few years, Drocelle would like to become a large farmer and she plans to grow her business by buying more fields to increase crop production. She would also like to buy 2 cows for her family, and pay for her children´s university education.
