A loan of $900 helped to purchase additional computer accessories.

Francoise's story

Francoise is 40 years old, is married with two children, and takes care of three dependents. Both the children and dependents are aged between 11 and 14 years. Francoise and her family live in the Eastern Province of Rwanda.

Francoise owns a public secretariat service where she deals with different computer services, such as typing, printing, photocopying, and other services. This is her ninth successful year in the secretarial business! The hours of her business are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Sunday.

Although Francoise has been in the business for nine years, the profit is still too low for her to expand meaningfully. For that reason, she believes that additional capital would enable her business to progress. To end this, Francoise is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to purchase additional computer accessories.

With this additional equipment, Francoise hopes that she will expand her business through hiring other people to assist in service delivery, as well as by improving the services provided to her customers.
