Delphine is a proven entrepreneur with ten years of experience. She sells a variety of goods in her small grocery store as her photo indicates. She employs one person in her shop and the hours of operation are from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.
Delphine is requesting her first loan from Vision Finance Company and Kiva lenders in order to expand her business. She will use the loan to purchase more variety of attractive goods such as soft drinks, biscuits (cookies), sweets (candies) and novelties which she hopes will appeal to her existing customer base and attract new customers as well.
By receiving and using this loan prudently, and with the hoped for profit from the expansion of her business, Delphine will be able to set aside savings to take care of her family and dependents.
