A loan of $975 helped a member to buy fertilizer and manure and to pay for labor.

Twunganirane Mashesha/rsz Group's story

Boniface is a pineapple farmer. He is 50 years old and married. He has five children, ranging from 18 to 7 years old. All of his children go to school, and he has no other people under his care. He was born in Rwanda and he attended six years of primary school.

He started to collaborate with ACB Ltd. in 2012, and this is his first loan. This loan is going to allow him to buy fertilizer and manure and to pay for labor. He does not expect any difficulty in repaying this loan. He is going to ask for other loans in the future, and this will allow him to expand his farming.

For his farming, he hopes to start a small side-business where he makes pineapple juice. For his family, he is going to ensure their well-being and pay for his children's school and academic fees.
