Monique was born in 1982. She has one child who is 5 years old. He is currently in school. Monique moved to Musanze after the death of her husband in 2009. He died because of sickness. Poverty kept the family from getting him the medical attention that he needed.

Monique was hired by True Vineyard Ministries in April 2012. Before True Vineyard, Monique worked in the gardens or washed clothes. Today Monique is grateful that God brought her to True Vineyard. She is now able to buy food regularly and has shelter. Monique became a Christian last year and attends the local Catholic Church.
