Jotham was born in 1975 and remains a bachelor. Jotham owns a small business selling beans. He says that this business is profitable in his region because they are foodstuffs that each family in Rwanda uses. Jotham works hard in order to improve his economy. The hours of his business are from 7 in the morning to 3 in the evening, everyday except Sunday. Jotham is so young in this field. He has one year of experience.

Jotham is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to expand his business through purchasing more beans and other foodstuffs, which can help him attract more customers. This attraction will allow him to sell a large quantity, which is a way to earn more profit. Once the profits accumulate very fast the way Jotham wants, he will try to save money to build or buy his own house. In fact, Jotham needs to get married as long as his target will be reached.
