A loan of $900 helped to buy an electric sewing machine.

Vincent's story

Vincent N. is a tailor in Rwamagana, Rwanda. At 27 years old, he is married and is the father of two children.

Vincent has requested a loan of 500,000 Rwandan francs (FRW). He and another client, Chantal Uwingabire, share a shop together and are looking to expand their business by purchasing an electric sewing machine. The beautiful foot-powered sewing machines they currently use at the shop will withstand the frequent electricity shortages, but are unable to create the classic "zig-zag" stitch of quality, modern clothing. With the new machine, he expects to be able to increase business, working faster and creating better quality garments.

With the profits from the loan, Vincent hopes to pay school fees for his children and start some personal savings. This is Vincent's first loan with Vision Finance Company.
