Fidele is 29 years old and is married with one child who is 3 years of age. Fidele lives in the Nyarugenge district of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. His wife is a full-time housewife.

This butcher shop business chosen by Fidele is profitable because he has good marketing skills and has many years of experience in this field. Since 2001 his business has been open from eight in the morning to eight in the evening every day except Sunday.

Fidele is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to grow his business through purchasing great quantities of meat for sale. This will allow him to earn more profits.

Fidele, above all, plans to provide all the needs of his family, to save money for his child’s school fees, and to create another business activity for his wife; these are his targets.
