Theoneste's story

Greetings from Rwamagana in Rwanda! Theoneste is 28 years old, married with two children, one adopted after being orphaned in the 1994 Genocide in Rwanda.

In 2000, Theoneste started a small shop in Rwamagana’s trading center selling a variety of items including soap, sugar, cassava flour, soft drinks, and clothes. He later expanded his business by growing sorghum and bananas to sell in the markets in order to increase his income. Currently employing four people and earning about $100 every month, Theoneste is applying for a loan of $925 to increase the stock in his shop and grow more sorghum and bananas.
