Vestine's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Vestine, an entrepreneur who owns a shop at the local market.

Vestine is 38 years old; she is married with three children, aged between 2 and 6 years. She requested a loan for the purpose of increasing the store by buying more juice, soda, sugar, and rice for the local market. With the profit from the loan, she would like to grow her business and increase her savings.

She thanks you for your support.
