Yvette Uwamahoro does her best to make a living for her three children in Kimironko, Rwanda. For a few years, she has run a shop providing her customers with various goods. However, Yvette struggled with a lack of capital. As the sole provider for her children, Yvette worried that she did not have the means to be able to expand her business and become more financially stable. When Yvette heard about the loan and financial training she could receive from Opportunity International, she knew she had found the solution she had been looking for. She used her loan to purchase her most popular products in bulk so that she can keep her shelves properly stocked. She also invested in purchasing a wider selection of goods, such as rice, sugar, and water, to meet more of the needs of her community. This growth attracted new customers to her store and increased her sales greatly. Yvette is excited about the more sustainable income her business can now provide for her family. Her dream is to use her new entrepreneurial expertise to continue expanding her business so that she can purchase land and build a house for her family.
