Jeanne is 40 years and she is married. She was jobless before starting the business. Financial problems brought her tenacity and innovation, however, and she decided to start a small business selling clothing items. This is her third successful year in this business, which she runs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.
Jeanne is a focused hard-worker. She puts energy in long hours trying to keep her business sustainable. One of her greatest joys is the one-on-one interaction she is able to have with her customers.
Jeanne would like to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that she can purchase additional bales of cloth and re-supply her inventory. With this loan, she will significantly expand her clothing trade. Jeanne believes that having a variety of bales of good quality will increase her sales as well as her profits.
