A loan helped to update guest rooms and the kitchen in a new guest house.

Florence's story

Florence and her husband have always loved having guests in their home. The ever warm and considerate hostess, Florence decided to turn this passion into a business. In 2016, Florence rented a small house and transformed it into a comfortable and simple bed and breakfast.

Because of Florence’s hard work and customer care, her business, Tea House Bed & Breakfast, has gained recognition from local and international travelers as a clean and affordable lodge in Kigali.

Over the years, Florence has been able to generate enough profit from the first location to open a second location to meet the increasing demand of travelers, especially during the high seasons. Florence is now requesting a loan to decorate and modernize the 10 rooms in this new location and add extra equipment in the kitchen.

With consistent bookings through the coming year, Florence is well positioned to repay this loan. Finally, this new location requires Florence to hire eight additional staff, thus creating more jobs through small business growth.
