The nature of his business is somewhat capital intensive and in order to grow, Bosco is now requesting his first loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company. He will use the loan in order to expand his shop through purchasing larger quantities of bulk goods and supplies at lower costs. With this additional capital, it will allow him to get the best pricing and adequately satisfy the product needs and wants of his customers.
As any entrepreneur, Bosco hopes to get more profits, which will help him to build a secure future for himself and his family (someday?!).
