Theodore is 36 years old and is married with one kid of 3 months. He and his family live in Gakenke, in the Northern Province of Rwanda.

For one year, Theodore has been in the business of selling drinks made from sorghum and he employs two people in his business. The hours of his business are from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Sunday.

Theodore is now requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company for the purpose of adding to his capital and purchasing more sorghum, as the demand of his customers keeps growing.

With this loan, Theodore hopes that his number of customers will increase as well as his profits, which in turn will help him and his devoted wife to build their own house.
