A loan of $425 helped to pay his children's tuition and school supplies.


Elie's story

Elie N. is a pastor at a local church in Rubavu, a district in Western Province, Rwanda. He is 46 years old and has eight children, between the age of 4 and 22. He was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He attended university, and holds a level A0 diploma in sociology. He has a good track record of repaying his loans, and he is now seeking his fifth loan, to pay his children's tuition and buy them school supplies for academic year 2011. His strategy for growth is to continue repaying the loan on time, so that he can seek other ones and help his children complete their studies. In the future, he wants to own a modern restaurant and a livestock farm.
