Maurice's story

Maurice is 32 years old. He is married and has two children ages 1 and 17 years old. He also cares for two dependents from another family. Maurice's wife works, as well, selling clothing at a local store. She earns 30,000 RWF/month (approximately $US 60.00). The K. family lives in the Gasabo District, a region of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

Maurice opened a music studio and recording business just last year. He also sells musical instruments. Maurice is proud to be a self-employed businessman. The hours of his business require that he works from 8 AM to 6 PM every day except Sunday. He employs one person in his business as a helper.

Maurice is requesting his first loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company to expand his business by buying musical instruments to sell and buying a computer to compose and record music. Maurice hopes his customers will be pleased with these new offerings. With this loan, Maurice hopes he will be able to expand his young business into a thriving enterprise and continue to support his family and build a secure future for them.
