Jaqueline's story

Jaqueline is 37 years old and is married with eight children aged between 2 and 17. She lives in Ruhengeli in the Northern Province of Rwanda, Burera district, which is approximately two hours from Kigali city. This is touristy region where there is a National Park of gorillas.

Jaqueline, before being a businesswoman, was a farmer. However, the more her family kept growing, the more she was unable to get all the basic needs for them. This is the reason why she prefers to be a businesswoman rather than a farmer.

Jaqueline sells foodstuffs such as beans, sorghum, and so on and opens her shop from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day. In this field of business she has two years experience and employs three people from her community as helpers so that her business runs well.

Jaqueline is requesting her first loan from Kiva lenders via vision Finance Company in order to purchase more foodstuffs to sell. Through selling larger quantities, she hopes to get a good result, which will help her to save money for her future and pay school fees for her children.
