A loan of $700 helped to build up her beekeeing business.


Gemime's story

Gemime raises livestock. She is married, is 30 years old, and has three children ranging in age from 1 to 5 years, one of whom attends school. She has 6 years of secondary schooling. This is her first loan cycle with ACB. She is going to use this loan to build up her beekeeping business. Her strategy for growing her business is to increase the number of bees she has and to build a large base of customers who get their honey from her. In the next few years, Gemime would like to become a successful beekeeper in her region. With her profits, she plans to pay for her children’s schooling.
