Elie's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Elie, an entrepreneur who is a tailor at the local market.
Elie is 37 years old; he is married with three children aged 3 to 14 years. He requested a loan for the purpose of increasing the store by buying more clothes for tailoring at local market. With the profit from the loan, he would like to grow his business and increase his savings.
He thanks you for your support.
