Monique is 29 years old, married with two children. Monique has been and still is working hard at the business of selling clothes. This is third successful year and the hours of her business are from 6 am to 6 pm every day.

Monique is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to expand her business through purchasing some other attractive clothing styles for sale as well as additional sizes. With this loan, Monique hopes to attract more customers in her business and hopefully earn more profits in the process. This, in turn, will allow her and her devoted husband to buy a house they have long dreamed of owning as well as allowing her to provide more and better food for her family and dependents.
