Kigali, Rwanda / General Store

A loan of $1,175 helped to expand her shop by purchasing a large quantity of sugar and rice.


Epiphanie's story

Epiphanie is 37 years old and is married with three children who are 2, 5 and 7 years old. She also takes care of two relatives who are 11 and 14 years old.

Epiphanie is a self-employed businesswoman selling a variety of goods, as her photo indicates. Those goods include cosmetics products like body lotion and toothpaste as well as foodstuffs like rice, sugar, flour and cooking oil. Her shop is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Epiphanie is now requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to expand her shop by purchasing a large quantity of sugar and rice, as they are in high demand.

With this large quantity, she will also start wholesaling. In doing so, she hopes to earn more profits which, in turn, will allow her to renovate her house, continue paying school fees for her two relatives, as well as build a secure future for her three children.
