Dina is 54 years old and is married with four children who are 16, 18, 21 and 23 years old. Dina is a proven entrepreneur dealing in the sale of clothing items: mainly fabrics for clothes and some other items needed in sewing various styles of clothes. She has been in this business for about fifteen years and the hours of her business are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Dina is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that she can expand her business by adding more clothing items for sale which, hopefully, will allow her to satisfy the demands of her customers. Through this satisfaction, she will continue paying school fees for her children and providing more food for them. In addition, she will keep making some savings for further reinvestment in her business.
