Seraphine's story

Seraphine is 41 years old and married with five children between the ages of 5 and 18 years old. Her husband is a repairman. She runs a small boutique in the Kabuga district of Rwanda. She employs two people and her store is open from 6 am until 11 pm. Seraphine has 20 years of experience in this business.

Seraphine has requested a loan from Kiva lenders in order to purchase more products for her boutique. She hopes this loan will help her obtain more profit from her sales. With the extra profit, Seraphine plans to pay school fees for her children and save money for the future.
