Christine's story

Christine is 24 years old and married with one child who is three years old. Christine owns a small business selling tomatoes, onion and cooking oil. These are very common foodstuffs used by all families in Rwanda. Christine works hard in order to improve her economic situation. The hours of her business are from 7 in the morning until 8 in the evening every day. Christine is very new to this business and has been working in the food market for only eight months.

Christine has requested a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to expand her business by purchasing more tomatoes and other foodstuffs, which can help her attract more customers. Christine hopes the business will be profitable, as she would like to purchase a motorbike.
