C1184 Jyambere Group's story

Greetings from Byumba, Rwanda! Byumba is in the northern part of the country, near the Ugandan border. Here, the Jyambere group is seeking its first loan from Vision Finance Company. The group is composed of five members: Souzane Mukabalinda, R. Mukagahimanyi, M. M., Xavera Mukakamari, and group president Laurence M.. They each sell sorghum and vegetables.

Laurence is 45 years old, married, and has five children, aged 18, 15, 11, 9, and 7. She also cares for two orphans. She has been selling sorghum for fifteen years and employs nine people to assist her in planting, harvesting, and selling it. She works from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and earns a profit of approximately 223,000 Rwandan francs each month (about $440).

She is requesting a loan worth 40,000 Rwandan francs so that she may purchase more sorghum, beans, and vegetables to sell to her clients. With the profits, she intends to pay school fees and buy more food for her family.
