Innocent is 28 years old and is married with three children aged between 8 months and 5 years. He lives in the Northern Province of Rwanda where he has had a shop since 1999. He employs one person in his shop, which is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.
Innocent is requesting his first loan from Vision Finance Company for the purpose of expanding his business through purchasing a greater variety of goods for sale.
By receiving and using this loan, Innocent hopes to improve his offerings to his customers and attract additional customers. If he is successful, the increased profits will help him to pay school fees and provide more, and better, food for his children. In addition, he hopes to help his community by bringing more high quality goods closer to them at the cheapest prices he is able to provide.
