Dushyigikirane 24 A / Rsz Group's story

Onesphore is a member and the president of the group Dushyigikirane No 24 A /Rsz. The group's name means "Supporting one another". He is 37 years old and married, and he has three children aged 3 to 10 years old. Two of the children are in school. He has an 8th grade education.

Onesphore is a rice farmer. This loan cycle is his third one with the microfinance institution ACB. He says the previous loan helped his rice farming a great deal, and he expected no difficulties at all in repaying the loan. He is going to use his loan to purchase fertilizer and to cover the cost of labor for his rice farm.

To increase his rice farming, he plans to request more loans in order to purchase fields to extend his farming. In the next few years, he would like to have a building for stocking his produce. With the profits, he plans on renovating his house and to pay the schooling and medical costs for his children.
