Aloys was born in 1978 and is still single. He owns a small business selling various products such as soap powder, cosmetic products, plastic cups and so on. Aloys has an experience of five years in his business but his profit is not enough to expand his business and sort out his personal problems. The hours of his business are from 5 in the morning to 10 in the evening every day except on Sunday. His business is known in the region and that is the reason Aloys needs to expand it.

Aloys is now requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to grow his business through purchasing the other products like beans, green bananas, sugar, and other foodstuffs so that he can satisfy the demand of his customers. In this way, Aloys will be able to obtain more profits. Using this increased profit, Aloys expects to get married.
