Jacqueline became the sole provider for her family after her husband, a soldier, was killed. But life got even worse for the widowed mother of five from Rwanda when she lost her teaching job.

She needed a way to become the breadwinner for her children. She had hopes and dreams for them that could not be realized without income.

"That's when we heard about [World Vision] giving small loans," she says.

With a loan and business training, Jacqueline opened a restaurant along with two other widows. It quickly became the most popular eatery in town.

Jacqueline is thankful that she can provide for her family.

"Because of the loan, my children have food to eat," she says. "They have clothes. They go to school. Our community is really happy."

You can help create success story by funding another hardworking entpreneur like Jacqueline. Once repaid, the loan is reinvested to help another hardworking entrepreneur in the same community.
