Care Group Twitezimbere 739 needed £1524.05 for their business.
Care Group Twitezimbere 739, which translates as “Let us move forward” is a voluntary savings and loans group created by Care Rwanda in 2011. The group is made of 27 women and 3 men. The group is requesting this loan to buy more sheep and goats to resell. With this investment in their businesses the group members will have enough money to pay school fees for their children, and they will also buy seeds to do good farming. On average, the group members have five children. Mrs Maria, a group member, explains that they came together after seeing positive changes from her neighbours who had joined Care Rwanda. She attended Care’s financial literacy program and there she met other group members. They started saving as small as $0.25/week. In the future, they would like to be a registered cooperative, and they would like the members to continue their income generating activities and pay health insurance and school fees for their children.They will repay the loan over six months.
