A loan of $550 helped to buy potatoes in bulk.

Marthe's story

Marthe N. is 48 years old. She is married and has 8 children between the ages of 10 to 25 years old. She lives in the Northern Province of Rwanda where she has sold potatoes for the past 4 years. She employs 3 people from her community in her business. Her business requires that she work from 8 AM to 4 PM every day.

Marthe is requesting her first loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company. She wants to purchase larger quantities of potatoes at lower prices due to greater volume. With this loan, Marthe hopes to attract more customers to her shop and, hopefully, to earn more profit in the process. This, in turn, will allow her and her devoted husband to build a more secure future for their family.
