His village, called Rugarama, is where he has had his business of tending chickens and selling them and their eggs since 2006. His business is open every day from 6 in morning to 5 in evening and he employs two people in his business so that it runs well and gives him some time with his family.
JMV is requesting a loan from Vision Finance Company and Kiva lenders in order to purchase more chickens and eggs that will help him to increase his sales and attract more customers. This should produce additional profits which he will reinvest into his business to create a strong and secure future for his young family.
