Alex is 47 years old. He has a wife and four children who are between 12 and 17 years old. Alex is known in the business of selling drinks and he has been in this business for about 10 years. The hours of his business are from 6 am to 10 pm every day.

Although Alex has been in this business for a long, his capital is still too low as well as his profits. To end this, Alex needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company, which in turn will allow him to increase the sales as well as the profits. With these profits, Alex hopes to start saving as well as reinvesting in his business which hopefully will result in helping him to continue paying school fees for his children and building a secure future for them.
