Challenge

As Rwandan women advance in the workforce, their time is increasingly divided between traditional homemaking duties and their new business obligations.

Solution

Women comprise 55% of Rwanda’s workforce and head 1/3 of all households. Women are essential to Rwanda’s rebuilding. Supporting Herve means supporting Rwandan women as they work to balance work and home.

Long-Term Impact

I will provide jobs to women who used to sell fresh fruits in Kigali Streets. Three years from now, I will have 400 households as clientele and 64 employees. In addition, we will be providing fresh produce straight from the farm and at lower prices.
