Aboubakar Group’s story

Her previous loan helped Nura to increase the number of hens that she had and to buy good-quality poultry feed.

She is seeking this new loan to improve and expand her activity and services. This will also help her to avoid running out of feed.

Some of the challenges faced by Nura are when hens die and when customers are dissatisfied due to the insufficient supply of products that they need.

This loan is special because:

It gives woman-owned small businesses in the impoverished Sud-Kivu region access to financial services and training.

More about this loan

This loan supports the women-owned small businesses in the Lake Kivu region of DR Congo. Many families have moved to this region to escape the violence in other parts of DR Congo but are left without jobs or any means of supporting themselves. These women often invest their profits in their families — to feed, clothe, and educate their children and to ensure the health of all family members. By supporting this loan, you are helping to empower Congolese women to start their own businesses and provide for themselves and their families.
