Beatrice's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to invest in her shoe business to make it operational again.

Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a refugee entrepreneur living in Rwanda, in Mahama refugee camp, after fleeing violence in Burundi in 2015. She is married with one kid. Beatrice started her grocery store business in 2017 but later she switched to the clothes and shoes business because of the rising demand.

With the first loan and second loan, she was able to expand her clothes and shoe business and the business was booming but with the rise of the pandemic, she was unable to operate due to lockdown restrictions. Another loan will help her invest in the business to make it operational again.
