Abihuje / Rbv Group's story

Madame Costasie is a member of the ABIHUJE / RBV Group and grows potatoes. She is 52 years old, married, with seven children, the eldest of whom is 34 and the youngest is 8. Three of her children go to school and she has not taken in any children in addition to her own.

She began to work with ACB in 2012; this is her first loan cycle with ACB. This loan will allow her to pay wages to the workers who cultivate her fields and to purchase seed (20kg potatoes). She has a plan to purchase an additional plot, which will allow her to be the top grower in her region. With the profits, she will build a house for her family.
