Nyakagezi/zz Group's story

Thémistocle is part of the Nyakagezi/ZZ group. He is 27 years old and single. He has 3 dependents. In education terms, he has completed 6 years of secondary education. Thémistocle is a rice farmer. This is his first loan with ACB. He will use the proceeds of the loan to purchase chemical fertiliser and to hire labourers. His strategy for growing his business is to increase the number of fields under cultivation and to use chemical fertiliser. In the coming years, Thémistocle would like to have other fields to increase rice production, in order to satisfy the demand. With the profits, he intends to get married and to build a home.
