Jeanne D'arc's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy a delivery van to reach more customers who could not previously afford clean drinking water.
Jeanne D'arc's story
Jeanne D’Arc has been a Jibu franchisee for five years. She has taken Jibu to most of the families in her neighborhood. The good service she gives to everyone who comes to her franchise makes customers happy. She is also a public health nutritionist for USAID-funded projects (Ejo Heza, Twiyubake and Hinga Weza). She always looks for opportunities to build a health profitable business to become a successful woman entrepreneur in Rwanda who addresses health issues. In her own words, "Jibu came as an answer to me with safe drinking water." Her biggest challenge now is delivery. She doesn’t have the means to supply resellers that are far from her franchise, and it is quite expensive to rent a delivery van. This loan will help to purchase a delivery tool and reach more customers that are not able to get safe drinking water.
