Claude's story

Claude is an entrepreneur living in Rwanda after fleeing violence in Congo. Since 2015, Claude has steadily grown his business which provides much-needed support for his family.

With his first loan, Claude was able to increase the number of services he offers. He was able to successfully repay the loan and now would like another one as working capital to increase his service offerings by buying more equipment to meet the increasing demands of his customers.
