Claudine is 35 years old and is married with seven children who are between 3 and 10 years old. She is well-known in the business of selling fruit which she starts very early in the morning, running until late in the evening hours. Claudine is very proud of her business as it allows her to provide daily food for her children.
Although Claudine has been in this business for about ten years, her original investment is still too low to earn enough profits which in turn can be used for further reinvestment in her business, improving her family situation, and saving for a better future. To end this, Claudine is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company which hopefully will help her to achieve a lot.
