A loan of $900 helped purchase more meat and supplies for sale.


Speciose's story

Speciose is 44 years old and married. Speciose and her husband take care of 3 dependents aged 9,12, and 20. Speciose and her family live in the northern province of Rwanda, in a place called Nyarugenge, which is approximately 3 hours' drive from Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. Here, Speciose has had her own butcher shop for the past four years. The demands of her business require that she work from 6 AM to 7 PM every day except Sunday.

This is Speciose's second loan; she paid back her first loan in full and on time. Her business has been a bit slow recently and her working capital is strained. Speciose believes that if she gets her second loan, she will be able to supply sufficient meat and meat products to her customers and purchase needed supplies. Any profits that Speciose earns from the products that she purchases with this loan she will reinvest in her business to strengthen her balance sheet.
