Jean Marie Vianney's story

Jean Marie Vianney is a 36-year-old, married father with two children. He has operated a general store business for the past year and a half. He works everyday from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m., with only one other person to assist. While the work is tough and the hours are long, he is committed to his business, so that his children may prosper.

Jean Marie Vianney has requested a Kiva loan via VisionFund Rwanda Company to buy more rice, cooking oil, sugar, etc. With this loan, he will earn more profits, which will allow him to keep reinvesting for better financial stability, as well as pay his children's school fees and medical insurance.

Over the next five years, as his business continues to grow, Jean Marie Vianney hopes to earn enough money to expand his business and save for his future as well.
