Thijs's story

Thijs produces Rwanda's most delicious potato chips, Winnaz Crisps, made entirely from Rwandan potatoes and packaged in biodegradable bags consistent with the country's ban of single-use plastics. Thijs has been running the company since 2014 and has grown his business steadily since the first product launch in 2016. Currently, Winnaz has 43 employees across four locations, and they are posed to grow.

Thijs is requesting a loan of 7million RWF to purchase a delivery vehicle. This new car will enable the company to double their weekly delivery capacity, resulting in more jobs created over the next year.
