Valentine is a 29 year old Rwandan entrepreneur with 4 children between the ages of 3 and 9 years old. All are in school.

For the past 9 years, she and her and husband have run a business selling second hand shoes.

Valentine will use the money from this loan to purchase more shoes so that she can increase her profits. She hopes to build up enough capital so that she can expand her business by selling a greater variety of goods in addition to second hand shoes.
