Jaqueline is 30 years old, is single, and lives with her parents. She owns a business selling various clothes; in this business she has an experience of seven years and employs one person as a helper. Her business starts at seven in the morning and runs to eight in the evening every day except Saturday. Her business is profitable but, unfortunately, she has only a small amount of capital invested in it.
Jaqueline is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to expand her business which will allow her to earn more profits. She expects to reinvest this profit in her business.
