A loan of $900 helped to buy additional sacks of charcoal.


Claudette's story

Claudette is 41 years old and is married with three children who are 5, 7 and 11 years old. Claudette and her family live in Rulindo, a region of Ruhengeli situated in the Northern Province of Rwanda. Here, Claudette operates a business selling charcoal and this is her third successful year in this business.

When Claudette started her business, her clients were few but now the number of them has increased to the extent that she is unable to satisfy them. To end this, Claudette is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that she can purchase more sacks of charcoal for her business.

With this business expansion, Claudette hopes to earn more profits. With these profits, she will continue to take care of her family as well as saving for her future.
