Vahasukore A Cb Group’s story

Vahasukore A Cb is a group led by Donatille who is 52 years old. The group name means “Work hard” in English. Donatille is married with two children aged 16 and 32. One of them attends school. She sells foodstuffs and has been doing business for the past 27 years. The group members sell different items and they have the same idea for changing their lives.

With the loan, Donatille would like to buy more beans, sorghum and baking powder to sell. The profits from the business will be used to pay school fees for her child, make savings, and buy beans for selling.

This loan is special because:

It provides financial opportunities to riskier Rwandan entrepreneurs who rely on social collateral.
