Aline's story

Hello from Aline U. in Kigali town in Rwanda! This entrepreneur is 31 years old, married with four children. Aline started her business when she was 14 years old, selling avocados and fruits like oranges, passion fruit, lemons, etc., carrying the basket on her head.

This entrepreneur has seen her business grow over the past years and she is now selling food items. She buys beans, rice, and sorghum in tons (many kilograms) and keeps them in her warehouse where she sells them at an increased price when they are in short supply and during the planting season. Besides the business, she also plants beans for both home consumption and for sale.

She is requesting a loan worth 500,000 Frws to increase her food stocks and be able to make money to pay for her children’s school fees next year; they study in secondary schools. This loan will be repaid in 8 months.
