Jean Paul
Jean Paul is 31 years old. He is married and has four children between the ages of 3 and 20 years. He also cares for one orphan. Jean Paul lives in Kimironko where he owns a shop selling a variety of goods, including food and cosmetics. This is his 2nd successful year in this business. His working hours are from 7 AM to 8 PM every day.

Jean Paul is now requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company to buy more goods, including food, like rice, peas, and corn flour, because they seem to be in higher demand than other goods sold in his shop. If the sale of these additional goods is as successful as is expected, Jean Paul will earn more profit which, in turn, will allow him to continue taking care of his children and building a secure future for them.
