Hardworking mother of seven, Therese Nyirantore, lives in Kicukiro, Rwanda with her husband and children. For years, Therese has owned a business selling flour to customers in and around her community. Therese works hard to build relationships with her customers, so they continue to purchase flour from her. Despite her hard work, it hasn’t been easy for Therese; in fact, there was a time she worried she would not be able to put food on the table for her family. Everything began to change for Therese when a friend introduced her to Opportunity International. After joining, Therese received financial training and a loan to invest in her business. With the funds, she purchased flour and maize in bulk. With more ingredients to sell, Therese was able to attract new customers and increase her profit margin. Thanks to her loan, Therese can grow her business, plan for her future, and ensure her children receive a quality education.
