Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel has been an ACB client since 2009. He is 33 years old, married, and has a 10-month child; he has only one dependent. He is born in Uganda, but is Rwandan. He went to school up to the fourth year of high school. This is his third loan, which Emmanuel will use to buy a sewing machine, 50 pieces of fabric for men's clothing and 30 pieces of fabric for women's clothing
His strategy for business growth is to increase capacity and open new workshops. In the future he would like to open workshops and have a large workshop in this district. He would like to purchase a lot for his family and to build his own house. He also raises cattle.
