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

A loan helped to buy 20 low-cost LED lights to resell to rural households which lack electricity.

Yvonne's story

Yvonne is 49 years old and lives in the Gatsibo District of the Eastern Province of Rwanda. She is seeking a loan for RWF 60,000 ($100) to buy 20 rechargeable LED lights, which she will resell to people in her village who don't have electricity. Every week or so, these customers will return to her to have their lights recharged for just RWF 100. She is also a farmer and will reinvest the money she makes in expanding her other business to earn more money for herself and her husband.
