A loan of $1,050 helps to buy more maize flour and rice.


Venuste's story

Venuste is a 27-year-old father of two under two, who lives in Rwanda. His wife is a businesswoman and for the past four years, he has owned a grocery store in the western province of the country.

Venuste will use his loan to buy more maize flour and rice to meet customer demand. With the profits from his sales, he hopes to expand his business to different cities.

He is thankful for your support.


This loan is special because:

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