Gorette is 27 years old, married with two children who are 2 and 4 years old. Gorette and her family live in Nyarugenge district, one of the districts of Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. In this area, Gorette operates a business selling new shoes, specifically shoes for women. This is her fifth successful year in this business. Her business is open from 8 AM until late in the evening hours.

Gorette needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company for the purpose of expanding her business by adding men's and children's shoes as they seem to be in high demand. With this additional business, Gorette will hopefully earn more profits. With these profits, she has a goal of reinvesting in her business so that she can maintain the sustainability of her business and save for the future education of her children.
