Micro-credit: a Rwandan experience

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.
