Beatrice is 33 years old, married with two children who are 7 and 18 years old. Beatrice is a self-employed businesswoman wholesaling sacks of Irish potatoes, and she has been in this business for a long time. The hours of her business are from early morning until late in the evening hours.
With the problem of not being able to satisfy the demand of her customers, Beatrice is now requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company which will allow her to increase the quantity of Irish potatoes she can sell. With this additional quantity, Beatrice expects to earn more profits, which in turn will allow her to be financially stable and continue taking good care of her family.
