Girimpuhwe Group’s story

Clementine is 33 years old and is married with children. Due to her experience and background, Clementine was nominated as the group leader for Girimpuhwe. In the photo Clementine has raised up her hand.

Clementine owns and operates a corner market. Like many of those in the group, her business is well organized and requires that she work from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. Despite the long days, Clementine is determined to operate a successful business in order to provide a better life for her children.

Clementine has requested a loan from Kiva through VisionFund Rwanda Company in order to buy inventory like passion fruit, oranges, bananas, etc.

With the profits from this loan, she will be able to reinvest in her business, pay school fees for her children, and save for her future.
