Although Immacule has been in this business for about eight years, her capital is still too low to earn enough profits. To solve this problem, she would like to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to expand her shop through adding a variety of foodstuffs including rice, beans, peas, Irish potatoes, etc.
With these additional goods for sale in her shop, Immacule will hopefully earn more profits and these profits will allow her to keep reinvesting in her business and start saving for her future.
