Nadia is 27 years old and is married with one child who is one year old. Nadia's husband is an accountant. Nadia has had her general retail store in the Nyarugenge district of Rwanda for 2 years. She employs 2 people and her store is open from 7 am until 9 pm.

Nadia has requested a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that she can expand her shop by adding a large quantity of goods. These goods will mainly include foodstuffs like juice, notebooks, water, and different types of flour, etc. With these goods, Nadia will hopefully earn more profits, which in turn will allow her to reinvest in her business so that her revenue can keep growing. If successful, Nadia will continue taking care of her children by providing more food for them as well as building a secure future for them.
