Marie Chantal is from Rwanda. She has 2 children. She needs a loan of $175 to purchase more eggs for resale.
Marie Chantal Yankurije sells eggs in Buheta, Rwanda. She has two children. Her goal is to become financially stable.
A loan from World Vision will enable Marie Chantal to attract more customers and improve her business. She wants to provide a better life for her family.
The additional income Marie Chantal earns from selling eggs, will allow her to purchase more goods for sale to customers and she hopes this additional income will allow her to offer jobs to her community.
Retail is a quick and scalable way to begin earning a profit. Many entrepreneurs begin with stalls at markets or even at home and need a loan to expand or increase their inventory. Others may be ready to open a small store. Goods purchased from loan funds range from clothing, grocery or sundry items to jewelry, candy, perfume or health and beauty supplies. Loans in the commerce sector account for around 33% of our loans.
The community of Nyarutovu is located in a hilly area, with access to the road that leads into Kigali, Rwanda’s capital city. Families depend on crops, including passion fruit, green vegetables, and bananas, for income. The climate is characterized by three seasons—a short rainy season, a long dry season, and a long rainy season. The area is served by one small river.
More than 2,500 women in the community lost their husbands in the genocide of the 1990s and now struggle to generate income, often while dealing with the effects of HIV and AIDS. Many children in Nyarutovu live in child-headed households, eat only one meal a day, and don’t attend school.
In Nyarutovu, World Vision is constructing classrooms equipped with toilets, providing educational supplies and paying school fees, building homes for orphans and vulnerable children, ensuring that those with HIV and AIDS have access to medical care, and building water tanks for access to safe water.
