A loan of $6,000 helped a member to purchase additional inventory (of foodstuffs) for re-sale purposes.


Abizerwa B Cb Group's story

Theodosie (pictured with her hand raised) is a group leader of a group called Abizerwa, which means “Trustworthy” in English. She is a 49-year-old married with four children. Her children are between the ages of 17 and 26, and they all go to school.



As a group leader on behalf of other members, she said that “Each group member sells different goods, with the aim of transforming their businesses to higher levels.” Since 2001 she has been active selling foodstuffs.



She has requested this loan to increase the inventory of her foodstuffs. In the future, she would like to become a wholesaler. She plans on saving the profits she expects to generate from her business as a result of the loan so that she can continue to improve her business and her family's living conditions.

In this group: Theodosie, Julienne, Sarah, Beatrice*, Lamberthe, Vestine, Elevanie, Beatrice*, Clemence, Julienne, Speciose, Viateur, Petronille, Josephine*, Stephanie, Rahabu, Martin, Rose, Philippe, Vicent*, Speciose, Rose
