Amahoro Group's story

Joseph is a member of group Amahoro. He is 44 years old and married, with five children between the ages of four and fifteen. Three of the children go to school. His own education consists in six years of primary school.

Joseph is in retail. This is his first loan cycle with ACB. He will use his credit to purchase articles and clothing to retail in his shop.

His strategy to grow his business is to save money with which to improve the business, and to pay back his loan punctually in order to be eligible for larger loans. In the coming years, Joseph would like to become a major retailer. With the profits, he is planning on sending his children to school and to improve his family’s well-being.
