Dukore Twitezimbere Group's story

Drocella is a member of the joint-liability group called Dukore Twitezimbere. She is an onion farmer. Drocella is 44 years of age and divorced with six children. Her oldest is 26 and her youngest is eight years old. Two of her children currently attend school, and she has two other dependents in her care. She was born in Rwanda and attended school until the seventh primary.

In 2011 Drocella began working with ACB Ltd, and she is currently on her third loan cycle. Her first two loans were repaid in full. With her current loan, Drocella plans to purchase onion seeds and to pay for the labor required to work her fields. She does not expect to have any difficulties in repaying her loan.

Drocella uses chemical fertilizers in her fields. This strategy will enable her farming business to grow. Drocella plans to ensure the welfare of her family and build them a house. In addition to the farming for which she is seeking her loan, Drocella is also a food merchant.
