Filimina's story

Filimina is an entrepreneur who works in the Nyamagabe District of Rwanda. He started a business a long time ago while he was still a young man. With the income he received from his clothing business, he was comfortable getting married and starting a family. He and his wife both work hard every day to provide for their children and improve their standard of living.
