Impano Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to expand her business by purchasing more rice, beans, sugar, tomatoes and charcoal to sell to her community.

Impano Group's story

Josiane is 38 years old and married with three children between the ages of one and 16 years old. She has been selling rice, beans, sugar, tomatoes and charcoal. She currently employs four people to help her. Josiane works from six in the morning through eight in the evening every day except Sunday. She is the leader of a group which is called "IMPANO" in the local language, and she is in the white skirt in this photo. Josiane is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Fund Rwanda to buy more rice, beans, sugar, tomatoes and charcoal to sell. If successful, she will be able to save money for her future and re-invest in her business.
