Catheline's story

Catheline is 44 years old and is married with four children who are of school age. She and her family live in Kicukiro, one of the districts of Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda.

Catheline is in the business of making windows and doors through joining metal items with a soldering machine. This is her second successful year in this business which she starts early in the morning, not finishing until late at 6 p.m. every day.

Catheline is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company to purchase more soldering machines and metal items so that she can make more windows and doors. Catheline, by the use of this Kiva loan, hopes that her number of customers will be expanded and her customers will be interested in buying her products as she will make more good quality doors and windows.

Through the expansion of her business, Catheline and her family have a hope for the future.
