Leopord was born in 1982, is single, and takes care of three dependents. He lives with his parents in the Gasabo district of Kigali in the village called Remera. Leopord supports his parents which is the reason why he has to work hard in order to suppy the basic needs of his family.
Leopord owns a small shop which sells different kinds of products such as necklaces for men and women, toys for children, and so on. His business is open from six in the morning to ten in the evening every day, even during the weekend. He employs one person from the community in his shop as a helper.
Thanks to the demand, which is increasing very fast, Leopord is requesting a loan from KIva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to purchase more products so that he is able to satisfy his customers. He plans to get married when the level of profits he expects to earn is reached.
