Annonciatha owns a small shop which sells different kinds of products such as juice, cosmetics products, water, and so on. She has been engaged in her business for over three years. Her small shop is open from 6 in the morning to 9 in the evening every day except Sunday.
Annonciatha is now requesting her loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to purchase more products for her shop. These additional products will allow her to attract more customers which will help her to earn more profits. With these profits she expects to save money for the future of her family. Particularly, her children who are in school will get their school fees paid more easily.
