A loan of $875 helped to buy additional sacks of charcoal.


Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is 50 years old and is married with two children. He and his family live in the Nyarugenge district of Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda.

Emmanuel lives by selling charcoal in this area and this is his eighth successful year in this business. The hours of his business are from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.

Emmanuel is now requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that he can expand his business through purchasing more sacks of charcoal. With this loan, Emmanuel hopes that the number of his customers will increase as well as his profits.

With these profits, Emmanuel will use one portion of his profits for reinvestment in his business and, in addition, he will keep taking care of his family through doing whatever is positive for them.
