John Bosco
John Bosco is 31 years old and is married with two children aged 3 and 10.

Jean Bosco has been in the business of secretariat services for five years. His business is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and he works hard to service his clients in the community. This is reflected in the fact that his monthly profit before this loan was approximately 150,000 RWF per month (approximately US$270) and now his monthly profit has been highly increased.

Jean Bosco is requesting his 2nd loan to purchase new equipment and it is worth noting that he repaid his first loan on time and in full. His hope is that by building this business and making it bigger, he is securing a promising future for his young family. He thanks VFC and Kiva lenders for their support.
