Asiya is 30 years old, married with one child who is 4 years old . She also takes care of one dependent from another family. Asiya lives in Nyarugenge in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, where she has had a small shop selling various styles of clothes for men and women for many years. This is her 8th year of successful operation in this business! The hours of her shop are from 8AM to 9PM every day except Saturday.

Asiya is requesting her first loan from Vision Finance Company and Kiva lenders in order to expand her business through purchasing some other attractive clothing styles for sale as well as additional sizes and colors. With this loan, Asiya hopes to attract more customers to her shop and hopefully earn more profit in the process. This, in turn, will allow her and her devoted husband to move closer to their dream of buying a house of their own - also, it will allow her to provide more and better food for her family and her dependent.
