Abdoul is 38 years, married, and has 5 children aged between 5 and 12 years old. He lives in Gasabo, not far from the center of Kigali. Abdoul has been a proven entrepreneur selling a variety of goods in his retail general store located in his area of residence. He employs two people from his community and the business working hours are from 6 AM to 9 PM every day except Sunday.

Abdoul’s general store is currently facing an increased demand of some products. Therefore, he is requesting his first loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company so as to expand his business through purchasing more products that are in high demand. The products to be purchased include cosmetic goods, toilet soaps, toothpastes, cooking oil, and many others.

Abdoul expects to satisfy the growing number of customers who demand his products a lot as well as earning more profits than before. Abdoul will also increase his savings for future financial stability and continue taking good care of his wife and children.
