A loan of $2,200 helped a member to buy more bicycle spare parts to sell to his customers.


Abizeranye Gaseke Group's story

I Protais is 49 years old and he is married with one child who is 16 years old. He has had a spare parts business for the last three years.

Protais requested a loan from Kiva through VisionFund Rwanda in order to buy more bicycle spare parts to sell.

With the profits generated, he will be able to buy his own motorcycle and expand his business as well. The main challenge he faces in his business is the lack of enough capital. Over the next years, as his business continues to grow, Protais hopes to earn enough money to purchase new spare parts for his business and save for his future. He is pictured holding a passbook.
