Greetings from R. Jean Claude! He is 26 years old and he currently lives in the Gasabo district in Kigali.

Jean Claude is married to one woman and has two children. One is seven while the other is three months old. His wife doesn’t produce any income. This entrepreneur has owned a hardware shop since 2004, where he employs two workers. His business is open from 7:00am to 8:00pm, and he earns a monthly profit of approximately $150 US. Jean Claude is seeking a loan from Vision Finance Company in Rwanda totaling 600,000 Rwandan francs (or about $1075 US).
