Pascasie operates a small business of sorghum, where she sells local soft drinks. She works hard to support her family and provide them with a better life. Every morning, Pascasie opens her stand at 7 a.m. and works tirelessly until her daily supply is sold.

She is requesting a loan from Kiva via VisionFund Rwanda Company in order to expand her business . With her profits, she will be able to get medical insurance for her family as well as expand her business.
