Felix runs a cinema. Felix has chosen this business because there are many young people in his village who like to watch movies. This business is profitable. This is his first successful year in his business. He is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance to buy some new equipment and air conditioning, which is very important to attract more customers.
Felix employs four people from his community so his business runs smoothly. This loan will help him to improve his business by buying modern equipment and supplies. When Felix obtains more profits, he expects to save money and to reinvest in the business.
His cinema is open from 6:00 in the morning to 9:00 (2100) in the evening every day except Sunday.
