Just a few months ago, Alphonsine was unable to support all eight of her children, nor was she able to put a roof over their heads.
Today — thanks to a $260 loan from the Rwanda Community Partnership Project through her women’s group, called Tumenyane (a Kinderwanda word that means “to know each other well”) that enabled her to purchase some laying hens and the materials to build a coop — she not only has been able to house and feed her children, but also to send them to school.
Alphonsine is just one example of how successful the Rwanda Community Partnership Project’s microloan program has become over the past year.
