Anathalie has owned and operated a corner market for the past four years. Like many of the others in the group, her business is well-organized and requires that she work from 6am to 7pm everyday. Despite the long days, Anathalie is determined to operate a successful business in order to provide a better life for her children.

VisionFund Rwanda serves these entrepreneurs through both individual and group loans and provides them with financial education and tools for them to save money for the future. By supporting this loan, you are helping Rwandan entrepreneurs build the means to support their families and improve their lives.

VFR serves people and communities that are economically productive but low-income, especially in very rural areas. This includes small business owners and salary earners who are looking for opportunities to provide better lives for their families and a promising future for their children.
