Anastase K. is 35 years old and is married with four children aged between 4 and 12. Anastase lives in the Gasabo district where he owns a butcher shop. This is his sixth year of successful operation in business! The hours of his business are from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Although Anastase has been in the butcher business since 2003, his capital reserves are still too low to adequately satisfy the product needs and wants of his customers. He believes that a certain amount of additional capital to grow his business would allow him to offer more product and better quality.

For that reason, Anastase is requesting his first loan from Vision Finance Company and Kiva lenders to be able to purchase more weight of meats for sale which will bring him more revenue and, hopefully, more profit as well.

With this loan, and a successful business strategy, Anastase hopes to build a secure future for his family.
