A loan of $1,600 helps to buy more shoes.


Jackline's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Jackline, an entrepreneur who sells shoes. Jackline is 40 years old. She is married with five children aged between 2 and 22 years old.

She requested a loan for the purpose of increasing her business by buying more shoes to meet customer demand in her community. With the profit from the loan, she would like to expand her business and increase her savings.

She thanks you for your support.


This loan is special because:

It provides training, savings accounts and loans to Rwandan entrepreneurs unserved by the formal banking sector.
