Jean De Dieu's story
Jean de Dieu came to Rwanda as a refugee with his family in early 2016. Upon arriving in Rwanda, he struggled to provide for his family's basic needs. He started a grocery store that same year to help provide for his wife and four children. While his business has already made great gains in improving his and his family's lives, he knows he can do more. This second loan cycle will help him to successfully expand his store to offer new items and keep his more popular items in stock. He also plans to hire extra help in the near future giving other refugees a chance towards financial freedom as well.
