Alphred's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Alphred, an entrepreneur who sells goats at the local market.

Alphred is 40 years old. He is married with eight children aged between 2 and 18 years.

He requested a loan for the purpose of increasing the business by buying more goats to sell. With the profit from the loan, he would like to grow the business and pay the school fees of the children.

He thanks you for your support.
