A loan of $1,600 helps to buy more beans and maize.


Ignace's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Ignace, an entrepreneur who sells foodstuffs in his community. Ignace is 39 years old. He is married with five children aged between 2 months and 17 years old.

He requested a loan for the purpose of increasing his business by buying more beans and maize to meet customer demand in his community. With the profit from the loan, he would like to expand his business so that he can buy a car which can help in foodstuff transportation and increase his savings.

He 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.
