A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy bicycle spare parts.


Twegondezehamu Group's story

Yusuf is a married man aged 33 with two children and taking care of two dependents. He is a mechanic and also sells spare parts. He started his business in 2003, and his intention was to have a source of income to be able to look after the family.

Yusuf wants the loan to buy bicycle spare parts so that he can meet the demand of his clients. Many people there use bicycles as their major means of transport. He will get income to meet the family needs. He has a challenge with the transport and sometimes the delay in supply because of frequent orders due to limited capital.

Yusuf's future prospects when he gets this loan are to increase his income and help those who drop out of the school with the mechanical skills since he is a skilled person in mechanics.
