Marie Claire
Marie Claire B. is 31 years old and is married with five children aged 3 through 12 years. She lives in Burera district, Northern Province, Rwanda.

Marie Claire has been in the potato business for three years and she employs four people from her local community in her shop. Work begins at her business at 4 a.m. each day, lasting until 4:30 in the evening.

Marie Claire is requesting a loan from Vision Finance Company so that she can buy larger quantities of potatoes and, she hopes, secure better pricing. This will allow her to serve her existing clients better and to attract new customers as well.
