More information about this loan
This loan helps support farmers in rural communities in Rwanda. The loan, which is available to both individuals and groups, is repaid in full at the end of the loan term, allowing borrowers to repay only after crops are harvested or livestock are sold. About 85% of Rwandans are employed in agriculture, but many formal financial institutions consider the sector to be too risky. VFC is one of very few financial institutions serving farmers and offering agricultural products that work with local harvest cycles. VFC also offers training on increasing crop yield and helps farming cooperatives access better agricultural inputs. By supporting this loan, you are helping rural Rwandan farmers improve their crop yield and ability to support their families.
