Aboubakar's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more food for his grocery store.
Aboubakar is an entrepreneur and married father of three. He came to Rwanda in 2015 as a refugee from Burundi. He quickly realized the aid he and his family received was not enough to sustain their daily living needs, or to give them the freedom to plan for the future. In 2016, he opened a shop to gain more income for his family. Since then, he has grown his business into three branches: a grocery store, a restaurant, and a small bakery. He's even hired four people from his community in the refugee camp to assist with his business. This loan will help Aboubakar buy more food for his grocery store, as he often runs out of popular items now. The growth of his business due to this loan will help Aboubakar continue to sustain his family's daily living needs.
