Jeannette's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped purchase bags to resell.

Jeannette's story

Mrs. Jeannette started selling school bags in 2003 at the Virunga market, in Goma. Her business grew little by little after 2006. She also opened a small kiosk in Birere, where she sells the same products.

Today, her business is doing well except that over-taxation occasionally surprises her, and that her country’s general economic situation is poor.

She would like to grow her business and open a new point of sale in the city of Goma.
