Claude's story

Claude is a refugee who was born in Congo and lives in the Nyabiheke camp. He was a baby when his parents arrived in Rwanda in 1997 due to the instability in Congo. Claude is single and lives with his mother and siblings. He started selling groceries in 2017 with savings built up from his previous job.

This business has enabled him to take care of his mother and siblings. His two previous Kiva loans have helped grow his business dramatically and it has become one of the best establishments in the refugee camp. Another loan to Claude will help him introduce new products in his business so that he can maintain a good reputation with his customers. He is determined to grow his business by adding more requested products.
