Andre K. is 41 years old and is divorced with three children, plus he also takes care of one dependent. The children are aged between 6 and 9 years. Andre lives in the Rubavu district of the city of Gisenyi, which is a three-hour drive from the the capital city of Rwanda.

By necessity, K. has been an entrepreneur selling hens for just one year now but his business is succeeding. He employs one person in his business and he works long days - 12 hours or more.

K. is now requesting his first loan from Vision Finance Company. The purpose of the loan is to purchase more hens and supplies. With this loan, he hopes that he will become more competitive and attract more customers. All of this will hopefully result in his earning more profit, which in turn will help him to pay school fees for his children, provide more food for his family, and provide a more secure future for them as well.
