Paul's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Paul, an employee in a non-governmental organization.

Paul is single and 28 years old. He requested a loan for the purpose of starting to build a house on a piece of land that he bought.

With the profit from the loan, he would like to increase his savings and have the ability to pay house constructors.

He thanks you for your support.
