Kamonyi: women don’t keep their money in Banks
Women of Nyarubaka village in Kamonyi district say that due to the little money they collect in their small cooperatives, they cannot keep it in banks.
They women collect money amongst themselves every month and lend it to help them solve some of the problems they meet in their everyday life because they are not yet able to work with the Banks.
Jeanne Nyiraturakunkiko, the leader of a group that comprises of 35women, says that they are still poor because they contribute little money which cannot allow them to buy any tangible things like a goat.
The women who include the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi widows say that they collect a total of Rwf8750 every month because everyone contributes Rwf 250 monthly. They have tried to increase or to contribute weekly but they have failed.
They say that they know the benefits of working with banks, but cannot save such little money and be able to secure the loans they want.
