H. is a carpenter and is married with two children. He owns two machines which allow him to make timber for sale. He has been in this business for about fifteen years and the hours of his business are from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.
With these fifteen years of experience in his business, the number of H.’s customers has increased to the extent that he can not now satisfy his customers. To end this, he would like to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to purchase an additional machine which will be useful in making many timbers for sale.
With this machine, H. will satisfy the demand of his customers and he will, hopefully, earn more profits. These profits will allow him to continue taking care of his family. In addition, he will keep reinvesting in his business through creating many sources of income and creating more jobs for the people in his community.
