A loan of $1,550 helps to buy more cows to sell their meat.


Odette's story

Greetings from Rwanda!

This is Odette, an entrepreneur who owns and runs a butcher shop in her community. She is 37 years old and married, with five children between 6 months and 15 years old.

Odette requested a loan to increase her supply and meet customer demand. She will use the loan to buy more cows to sell their meat. She will use her profits to expand her business.

Odette 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.
