A loan of $1,025 helps to purchase more inventory for his general store.


Isaac's story

Isaac is an entrepreneur living in Rwanda after fleeing violence in Burundi. Since 2016, Issac has steadily grown his business, which provides much needed support to his family.

With his previous loan, Isaac was able to increase the quality of his services and products, and also hired two fellow refugees to help him run the business. Isaac was able to successfully repay the loan and now would like another one to increase the inventory for his general business, in order to meet the increasing demands of his customers.


This loan is special because:

It helps refugees launch businesses to rebuild their lives.
