A loan of $900 helped to buy men's shoes to sell.


Dancilla's story

Dancilla M. is 40 years old, a widow with three children, and she takes care of two dependents with ages between 12 and 22 years old. Dancilla lives in Kicukiro district where she has owned a shop selling a mixed style of women’s shoes for the past eighteen years. Her business is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Dancilla is requesting her first loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company for the purpose of expanding her business through adding men’s shoes for sale in her business. She hopes that the savings from additional profits that are not reinvested will allow her to take care of her children, including her two dependents, through paying school fees and providing more food for them.
