NEWS & UPDATES
We are happy to announce this year’s Homes for HOPE Award Honoree – Vincent Habiyaremye. When he was first introduced to Urwego Bank (HOPE International’s microfinance institution in Rwanda), Vincent was going door to door to offer his carpentry services, looking for any work he could find.
Albert Sakissa started a modest cement business out of his home in Pointe-Noire, Congo. With capital from HOPE Congo microloans and the accompanying business training, he expanded from cement to construction materials to delivery and after-sales service and hired three employees, all within two years.
Seven years ago, Liliane had dreams to open a restaurant but no collateral. Turame Community Finance was the only bank in Burundi that was willing to take a chance on her idea, providing a community bank loan where the average first loan is $25.
