Hirwa Mutegarugori A/rgrr Group's story

Donathile is part of the "Hirwa Mutegarugori A/rgrr" solidarity group which grows corn. She is 48 years old, married and the mother of 5 children, the eldest of whom is 20 years old and the youngest, 13. Three of her children go to school and she is not responsible for any other people. She was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and has 2 years of primary school education. She started working together with ACB in 2012 and is on her first loan cycle. She will use the loan requested to rent a field, pay the labourers and buy seeds. Donathile anticipates only one problem which could prevent repayment of the loan; climate change. In order to increase her business, her strategy is to use chemical fertilizers. As far as her farming business is concerned, her ambition is to have her own field. Her ambition for her family is to make sure her children are educated at university level and to ensure her family's well-being. As well as farming, she also sells various items to retail customers.
