Clarisse is 22 years old and she is still single. She is well-known as a young entrepreneur selling a variety of clothes, mainly women’s clothes. This is her second successful year in this business which she operates from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.
Clarisse is now requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company for the purpose of expanding her business through adding a variety of styles such as men’s clothes as well as children’s clothes. With this additional business, she will hopefully earn more profits than previously.
With the increased profits, one portion will be used in building a secure future for her future family as she has a boyfriend ready to marry her, and the other portion will be used for further reinvestment in her business.
