Abadasiganakumurimo Group's story

Callixte is a member of the ABADASIGANAKUMURIMO group. He transports small fish. He is 30 years old, married, and has four children. His eldest child is 12 years old, and his youngest child is 5. Three of his children are in school, and he doesn't have anyone else living in his care. He has six years of primary school education.

He joined ACB in 2011, and this is his first loan cycle with them. The loan granted to him is used to buy equipment that he uses to transport small fish from Lake Kivu to the market. He is going to seek more loans in order to grow his business, become a great small fish carrier, and eventually become a great fisherman. The profit from his business will be put towards the education of his children.
