Tuzamurane Bugoba Group's story
Vestine is forty-six years old and the mother of six children. In the photo, she is the woman who is standing up and raising her hand. She operates a small business selling vegetables. She works hard to support her family and provide them with a better life. Every morning Vestine opens her stand at 7:00 a.m. and works tirelessly until her daily supply is sold. She foresees an unwavering demand, which she hopes will allow her to expand her business as she acquires more funds. She is requesting a loan from Kiva via VisionFund Rwanda to buy more green vegetables, onions, bitter tomatoes, cabbages, etc., to sell to her community. With any profits, she will be able to get medical insurance for her family, buy shoes for her children, buy enough food for her children, and expand her business as well.
