Dufatanye Nº4 Rsz Group's story

Augustin was born in Rwanda and is part of the Dufatanye Nº4 RSZ group. The name of the group means ´working together´. Augustin is single and is raising 4 orphans. He left secondary school after 3 years, and became a rice farmer. This is his second loan cycle with ACB. He will use his part of the loan to buy chemical fertilizer and pay the labourers who work on his farm. He plans to grow his business by harvesting large amounts of rice from small plots of land, thanks to the use of chemical fertilizers. In the next few years, Augustin would like to become known as the best rice farmer in his valley and become the main supplier of rice in the region. He plans to use the profits from his business to pay for the orphans´ educational expenses and continue with his own education.

In this group: Augustin, Jacqueline, Francois, Suzane, Vestine, Jonas, Abraham, Eliazar, Judance, Juvenal
