Josephine's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Josephine, an entrepreneur who owns a shop at the local market.

Josephine is 62 and married with 10 children aged 15 to 38 years. She requested a loan for the purpose of increasing the store by buying more sugar, salt, and rice to sell. With the profit from the loan, she would like to grow her business and increase her savings.

She thanks you for your support.
