Redempta is 36 years old and is married with four children who are 3, 5, 10 and 13 years old. She is well-known as a wholesaler of sweets (candies). She has been in this business for about two years and she operates her business from early in the morning until late in the evening hours. She struggles much in her daily business so that she can get food for her children.
Redempta needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that she can expand her business by adding the wholesale of cookies, biscuits and some other pastries. In addition, with this loan, she will start wholesaling soft drinks like soda, juice etc.
If successful, Redempta will continue taking care of her children as well as building a secure future for them. In addition she will start saving for further reinvestment in her business.
