Francine's story

Francine is 33 years old. For the past three years, she has owned a small retail shop selling rice, beans, sugar, vegetables, soaps and other basic goods. She does not have an employee because she is a hardworking woman, and she can handle all the duties alone.

Francine is aiming for the expansion of her business, but she is constantly challenged by the lack of capital. So, she is requesting this loan in sequence to have capital to buy more inventory and have sufficient stock of merchandise for sale.

The profits generated by this loan will be saved and utilized to pay her children's school fees and medical insurance. This is her third loan cycle with VisionFund Rwanda.

Consequently, Francine is sincerely grateful towards the Kiva lenders for allowing her this loan so that she can expand her business and improve her family's living conditions.
