Christine's story

Christine is 60 years old and is married with two children. She and her family live in Musanze, in the Northern Province of Rwanda.

In her village, Christine owns a shop selling a variety of goods such as cosmetics products. This is her second successful year in this business and the hours of her business are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Christine is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to increase her working capital. This will allow her to purchase some additional goods to sell including some foodstuffs like sugar, rice, beans and Irish potatoes as well as more cosmetics products and underwear. Those goods seem to be highly in demand by her customers.

With these additional goods for sale, Christine will earn more profits. With these profits, she will be able to build a secure future for her business as well as for her family.
