Marc's story

Marc is an ambitious entrepreneur that took a risk and started a business under harsh conditions. He came to Rwanda as a Burundian refugee in 2015. As a refugee, it was hard to adjust to the new environment after leaving home due to political instabilities.

Refugees are granted the opportunity to start businesses so Marc used the opportunity and started a grocery store. The grocery store is in the camp and most of his clients are fellow refugees. He sells different items such as drinks, grains, and other food products. Marc is requesting a loan to purchase more inventory of food items, like grains that have high demand at the market.
