Abizeranye Group's story

Valens is a member of Abizeranye Group, whose name means "the trustworthy". He's 33 years old, married, and has four children, age 2 to 9. Two of them attend school. He himself attended elementary school for 6 years.

Valens is a vegetable cultivator. He's seeking his second loan from Kiva's partner, ACB. He will use it to buy seeds, 100 kg of chemical fertilizers for his crops: tomatoes, cabbage, and other vegetables.

His strategy to grow his business is to sow on time and farm using good quality seeds, in order to harvest much more. In the forthcoming years, he would like to become a large distributor of tomatoes and cabbage for the markets in his district.

With his profits, he intends to pay the school expenses of his children, and build a new home for his family.
