A loan of $875 helped buy photocopier.

Theoneste's story

Mr. Théoneste B. is 30 years old. He was born in the Ngororero district of the former prefecture of Gisenyi in the Western Province. He is unmarried, lives with his parents, and has an A0 degree in Rural Development. He has a small stationary shop and offers public secretarial services. His microfinance institution is Amasezerano Community Banking. Today he is taking a loan in order to purchase a photocopier to use in his shop, as he has established his business very near the University Libre de Kigali's Gisenyi campus such that he can satisfy the needs of the university students. This is his second loan. In the long term, he would like to take out a loan for a house and also to be able to marry and have children with his continued savings.
