Vestine is 37 years old, married with two children and she takes care of two dependents. Vestine is commonly known as a wholesaler in her business area. The goods, which she wholesales, are cosmetic goods like body lotion, toothpaste, flour soap etc. She has been in this business for about two years and the hours of her business are from early in the morning until late in the evening hours.

Vestine needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that she can expand her business by adding more cosmetic goods for wholesale. With these additional goods to sell at wholesale, Vestine hopes to satisfy the needs of her retailers. If successful, Vestine will earn more profits, which in turn will allow her to continue taking care of her children as well as her two dependents. In addition, she will start to save for the future reinvestment of her business.
