Samuel's story

Samuel is 36 years old and is married with four children aged between 2 and 8 years. He lives in Kayonza district, approximately one and a half hours drive from Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda.

Samuel has been selling a variety of goods for the past ten years. He is a proven businessman and well-known in his community. The hours of his business require that he works from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day except Sunday.

Samuel is now requesting his first loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company, which will allow him to expand his business. He will use the loan to purchase a larger variety of goods for sale which he knows his customers want but which he has not been able to provide. With this expansion, Samuel hopes to earn more profits than ever. With this profit, he will be able to build a stronger business and take better care of his young family.
