SAFI Product

Targeting “Self help groups and Voluntary Savings and Loan Association (VSLA's) in the deep rural areas. Currently we work with CARE international and World Vision-Area Development Programs (ADPs) who link their matured VSLA's with VFR to access higher loans, as these clients start and transform from the very grass-roots levels of poverty.   It would be interesting to note that some of the members in the group request for loans as little as Rwf 5000 ($ 10) to be repaid in 12-16 weeks. VFR also serves groups that are also in the Area Development Program under World Vision     Rwanda

School Fees Loan Product

VFR has developed a school loans to meet the needs of our clients. The school fees product will especially help poor clients who belong in a community banking group and Solidarity group to send their children to school and parents/guardians are assisted with funds required at the time when children school starts; so the working capital for business is not affected too. The objective is to ensure that the children do not discontinue school due to lack of fees, books, uniforms and shoes.
