Dukore Twitezimbere Group's story

Félicité is a potato farmer and a member of the DUKORE TWITEZIMBERE group (which means "let's work for our development"). She is 45 years old, married, and has seven children, whose ages range between 21 and 5 years. Six of her children are in school, and she has no other dependent. Her education level is 8 years of elementary education.

Félicité became a client of ACB in 2010, and she is on to her second loan cycle. Her previous loan was well repaid. With this loan, she is buying 200 kilos of potatoes and one bag of chemical fertilizer. The only two elements that could make repayment of the loan difficult are either too much sun or too much rain. To increase her farming activity, Félicité's strategy is to increase her surface of cultivated land through the purchase of additional fields. This will become a possibility in the future thanks to the loans that she will be requesting. After increasing her surface of arable land, her next ambition is to diversify her crops.

Regarding her family, Félicité will continue to educate her children and she will be building a residential house for her family. Besides the activity for which she receives financing, Félicité also raises goats.
