Nelly was born in 1969 and is married with four children aged between 2 and 15. She and her husband reside in the Gasabo district of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, in a village called Gatsata.

Nelly owns a small shop in the market called Nyabugogo which sells various styles of clothes. She has an experience of sixteen years in this field. The hours of her business are normally from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Sunday.

Nelly’s business is not well-known simply because she sells in the market where the customers do not care about someone who sells but only what she sells - is it good quality or not.

This is the reason why Nelly is now requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to expand her business through purchasing more bales of clothes for men and women.

With this loan Nelly expects to obtain more profits which will allow her to purchase more bales of clothes. With the profits Nelly will be able to save money for the future of her children.
