Ramadhan is 30 years old and is married with two children aged 3 and 8 years. Ramadhan, after facing a financial problem, thought of starting his own business. This business is the sale of foodstuffs including Irish potatoes. He started this business in 2000 and the hours of his business are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Ramadhan is a proven entrepreneur and he spends a lot of time in keeping his business more stable as well as profitable. After realizing that his working capital in not enough for this purpose, he would like to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. He will use the loan to buy a large quantity of Irish potatoes and some other demanded foodstuffs.

If Ramadhan’s plan of increasing his business is successful, he hopes to save some of his profits in order to reinvest them in his business and to continue building a better living for his family.
