Valerie's story

Valerie is 42 years old and is married with four children with ages between 4 and 12 years. Valerie and her family live in Nyamagabe, in the Southern Province of Rwanda. Valerie has been in the business of studio photography for the past ten years and she is still in the same profession. Her studio is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. She employs two people in her studio and she hopes to see her studio become extremely expanded. Valerie says her goal is to expand her studio through purchasing some additional equipment including a machine to be used in printing out the photos. She is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that she can achieve this goal. If her plan is successful, Valerie hopes to build a secure future for her family as well as reinvesting some of her earned profits in the business.
