N. is 27 years old, single, and he sells a variety of goods in his shop. Those goods are rice, drinks, water, body lotions, soaps, etc. He has been in this business for about one year. N.’s shop is open from 6 am to 9 pm every day.
N. is now requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to satisfy the demand of his customers through purchasing a large quantity of foodstuffs like rice, beans, peas, wheat, Irish potatoes, etc. With these additional foodstuffs for sale, N. will hopefully earn more profits which in turn will allow him to start saving and reinvesting in some other sources of income in various business areas.
