A loan of $875 helped to buy a cow to slaughter and have meat.

Fidele's story

Fidèle N. was born in 1982 in Kamonyi, in the former prefecture of Gitarama, and he currently lives in the province of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

A young married man, he trades in meat at Nyabugogo in the sector of Muhima. With this loan, he wants to buy a cow to supply meat for his butcher's shop. He has regular meat customers because he supplies restaurants and he is paid monthly. Because of his customers' transactions, he quickly depletes his stock and needs to buy more cows to slaughter and to sell much more meat.

He has been able to meet the needs of his family and pay the rent by continually saving. In the future, he would like to buy his own house as he currently rents, and he would like to plan for his family's future.
