Duterimbere/kzr Group's story

Zachée is a member of the Duterimbere/Kzr group and is also its president. The name of the group means "Develop our group". He is 38 years old and married with five children ranging from three months to 13 years of age, three of whom attend school. He himself has six years of primary school education.

Zachée is a rice farmer. This is his third loan cycle with ACB, and he says that his previous loan helped him significantly with his rice farming activity and that he had no problem in repaying the loan. He is going to use his loan to buy fertilizers and pay for labor. In order to expand his rice farming business he plans to ask for further loans. In the coming years, Zachée would like to be the foremost rice farmer in his region. He is planning to use the profit he makes to pay for his children's schooling and health costs.
