Annonciatha is 31 years old, married with 3 children; they are 1, 6, and 12 years old. In addition, she takes care of one dependent from another family who is 16 years old. Annonciatha lives in Nyarugenge, a region of Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. Here, Annonciatha is the president of a group called Tuzamurane. This is the group's third successful year in the business of selling foodstuffs such as beans, potatoes, fish, soft drinks and produce. The hours of their business require that they work from early in the morning until late in the evening depending upon customer traffic on any given day.

The members of this group seek to improve their businesses and to increase their sales using the capital from this loan. This is their first loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, these members plan to carefully source and then purchase a greater quantity and variety of goods to sell. The group believes that this will satisfy the needs of their customers as well as earn more profit for Tuzamurane. With this profit, they will reinvest in their businesses so that in the future they can rely on equity and cash on hand for business expansion. Also, they all plan to continue taking care of their families and loved ones and build secure futures for them.
