Micro-credit: a Rwandan experience
There is much concern about a food crisis emerging in low altitude areas of the Eastern Province of Rwanda. Accordingly the Rwandan Red Cross (RRC) has set about evaluating food security situation in the country and looking at measures to combat the instability at its roots. This case study presents micro-credit projects implemented in Rwandan’s Eastern Province, as according to the results of an assessment conducted by RRC in 2001, the consensus has been to focus on the establishment of micro-credits projects, in particular those aimed at integrating crop-livestock and other income generating micro-projects.
