Dukundumurimo Group's story

Spéciose belongs to the Dukundumurimo solidarity group and grows onions. She is married, 35 years old and has nine children, the eldest being 28 years old and the youngest five. Four of her children go to school and she does not have any other dependents. She was born in Rwanda and went to school until 8th grade of primary school.

She began her collaboration with ACB Ltd in 2011 and is now on her third loan cycle. The first two loans were repaid on time. With the loan she has now asked for she is going to buy seeds, and with the remainder she will pay labor costs. She does not expect any difficulties in repaying this loan. Speciosé's strategy is to seek out the market for her produce so that she can sell large quantities of it and earn more money. This strategy will allow her farming activity to grow. As far as her farming is concerned her ambition is to be the most significant farmer in the region. As for her family she will ensure its well-being and pay her children's education costs up until university level.
