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.
Classic Homes is a locally owned Colorado Springs-based home builder and the only builder to have received the Better Business Bureau’s “Excellence in Customer Service” award on three separate occasions and is also the only builder to be designated as Colorado Springs Best Homebuilder by The Gazette for thirteen years running, and the Colorado Springs Business Journal for thirteen years running — a true testament to the care and commitment Classic Homes shows our customers and neighbors before, during, and after they’ve become members of the communities we create.
