Pascal is a married father of five. Pascal is the sole income earner in his family. He is a conscientious and determined entrepreneur. Pascal is also a refugee.
After fleeing neighboring Burundi, Pascal brought his family to Rwanda and started a shoe business. Most of his shoes are imported from Uganda and Dubai, and he sells them both at wholesale and retail prices.
To date, Pascal's business has been operating, but it hasn't been thriving. Because he imports his products, he struggles to maintain consistent inventory levels. Simply, when Pascal has inventory, he has customers, when his stock runs out, his customers find another merchant.
AEC wants to help Pascal smooth out his inventory levels so that he can maintain consistent customers and grow his business, and because Pascal is a refugee, he has few options to access investments.
