Dufatanye Bategarugori Group's story

Dative is a member of the Dufatanye Bategarugori solidarity group, which grows corn. She is 54 years old, not legally married and has 6 children, the eldest of whom is 29 years old and the youngest, 12. Four of her children go to school and she is responsible for no other people. She was born in Rwanda. She started working with ACB Ltd in 2008 and is on her 4th loan cycle. The previous loans have been properly repaid.

With this current loan, she will rent a field, buy seeds and pay the labourers. She does not expect any difficulties in repaying this loan. Her strategy to increase her agricultural output is to modernise her farming techniques by using chemical fertilizers. Her business ambition is to become a professional farmer. As far as her family is concerned, she will see that her children get an education and continue to ensure the well-being of her family.
