Francoise is 30 years old and is still single. She lives in Nyarugenge, a region of Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda.
Francoise has been in the business of selling a variety of goods, mostly used at home, for about two years and the hours of her business are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Sunday.
Francoise is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company for the purpose of expanding her business through purchasing a variety of items used at home as the photo indicates. With this loan, she will purchase more items, especially those used for cleaning the house and washing clothes, as those goods seem to be highly in demand. Francoise hopes that it will increase her sales as well as her profits.
With these profits, Francoise will reinvest them in the business for the purpose of building her secure future.
