Kayonza Women urged to form associations

Members of Abatwaramucyo, a forum of 12 associations for passion fruit growing in Nyamirama sector of Kayonza district, urged women to form cooperatives and associations for fast social economic development.

Every member of the group contributed Rwf100 every week in the start but the forum has expanded to over Rwf4million capital

The forum for passion fruit growing has 80 members from 12 associations

Women are encouraged to form cooperatives in order to access bank loans and start income generating projects for fast social economic development.
