Pétronille was born in Rwanda. She is 53 years old. She is a widow and has four children between the ages of 18 and 23, all of whom have attended school. She supports two people other than her children. She has six years of primary education. Pétronille is a shopkeeper. This is her second loan cycle with ACB. She will use her loan to buy equipment to use to sell electricity, and to strengthen her video library business. Her strategy for growing her business is to improve the quality of service in order to increase her customer base. In the coming years, Pétronille would like her business to become more large-scale in her region. With the profits, she plans to pay for her children's education and improve the well-being of her family.
