Umubano Nyarwanda Cooperative chairperson in the women’s market

Rubengera Women have expressed their appreciation for the Rwandan government and different organisations that encouraged them to form a cooperative saying their living conditions indicate a remarkable change.

Most of the women who claim to have improved their state of living over cooperative involvement used to vend vegetables and fruits on basins around some towns and centres

The street vendor women had very little income until they were made to work in the market together; they formed a cooperative and increased their capital through saving schemes

The cooperative ‘Umubano Nyarwanda’ has accommodated many women who are now traders of various items. The work from a market built for them dubbed Rubengera Women’s Market.

‘Umubano Nyarwanda’ Cooperative was formed with 15 members who were street vendors in 2009 and they are 60 women at present.
