Samuel's story

Samuel is 30 years old and is single. He takes care of his parents. He lives in the Gasabo district of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

Samuel’s business is located in the village of Nyarutarama which is a residential place. He owns a small shop selling different kinds of products such as cosmetics products, soaps, plastic shoes, sugar, rice, and so on. He chose this business simply because it is very profitable as well as important for his neighbors.

Samuel has many years of experience but his monthly profit is still too low to expand his business meaningfully. He believes that a small amount of additional capital would change that for him. For that reason, he is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company to purchase additional products which will make him more efficient and effective and more successful. He thanks VFC and Kiva lenders for their support!

Samuel is very serious in his business; the hours of his shop are from six in the morning to six in the evening every day except on Saturday and he employs one person so that his business runs well. Samuel expects to obtain more profits which will be used for reinvestment in order to satisfy his customers by offering them enough products at a good price.
