Abajyamugambi No .3 Group's story

Benoit is a member and the president of the Abajyamugambi group. The name of the group means "Members share a common goal". He is 49 years old, married, with seven children ages 4 to 21 years old. Six of his children are in school. His own level of education is six years of primary school.

Benoit is a rice farmer. This is his third loan cycle with ACB. According to him, his previous loan has greatly helped his rice-farming business, and he is expecting no difficulty repaying this loan. He will use his loan to buy fertilizers and to pay for the cost of labor for his rice-farming business.

In order to expand his farming activity, Benoit is planning to request additional loans to help him increase his rice-farming capacities. In the coming years, he would like to be the best rice producer in his region.

He will use his profits to pay his children's school fees and healthcare costs. He is also planning to build a house.
