but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Diane's story

Diane is a refugee, but more than that she is a mother, wife, vice president of the refugee camp, and business owner. When she came to the camp in 2012 with just her family and a few belongings, she saved what little she could to launch her business selling and trading potatoes. Since then, she has grown her shop to offer several different staple foods. In her last loan cycle, Diane was able to stock enough food to keep up with the customer demand in one shop location, but she can barely keep up with it in the other location. Diane seeks a second loan to solve her working capital shortages and to continue growing her business and rebuilding a life for her family. One day, Diane hopes to purchase a home and land for her family in Rwanda. This loan is one more step toward reaching that goal.
