Rusizana's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to improve the quality of his hotel through property upgrades.

Rusizana's story

Rusizana owns a guest house/hotel in Musanze District in Rwanda, known as a world-class destination for the Rwandan mountain gorillas. With the guest house near Rwanda's biggest tourist attraction, which is the Volcanoes National Park, there is great potential for this business to continue to grow.

As a husband and father of seven children, Rusizana's guest house has helped him to provide for his family, pay school fees for all of his children, and work towards a middle-class life for his family in Rwanda.

Rusizana did not have an easy start, however. He began the guest house by renting the premises. Slowly, he earned enough to buy the property. This allowed him greater security, but he also incurred much more upkeep costs.

Today Rusizana is requesting a loan to improve the guest rooms and kitchen services, allowing him to charge higher rates at his hotel and generating more business. Rusizana is motivated and focused. He wants his guest house to be one of the best in Rwanda!
