Abishyizehamwe A Group's story

Emmanuel is a member and the president of the group Abishyizehamwe A. The group’s name means “those who come together for development”. He is a 28-year-old married father of two children aged 2 and 5. He attended 6 years of primary school.

Emmanuel is a rice farmer. This is his third loan cycle with ACB, and he says that the previous loans helped his activity considerably and he did not anticipate any difficulties with repayment. He plans to use the credit to purchase chemical fertilizers and pay for the cost of labor.

Emmanuel's business growth strategy is to obtain additional loans to strengthen his activity, and to use specially selected seeds. In the coming years, he would like to own numerous storage facilities in his region and become the leading rice farmer. He plans to use his profits to pay for his children’s tuition and healthcare.
