This project will save us $3,000, allowing us to invest in the supporting our entrepreneurs in building their businesses and creating jobs.

What We Need

  • Design of a presentation template based on organization's visual branding guidelines
  • Creation of 10-15 different slide types in Powerpoint, Keynote, Google Slides, Keynote, or another presentation software that can be customized for various needs

How This Will Help

Sometimes all it takes is a small loan to help get refugee entrepreneurs back on their feet. AEC Rwanda Trustee offers affordable micro-finance loans to our entrepreneurs in partnership with Kiva. With a recently updated logo, we need to communicate our finance initiative to partners, entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders. This project will help us build a consistent platform from which to do so.

What We Have In Place

We currently have logos, and brand guidelines which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have past presentations and the ability to provide any other information you need.
