Jean Baptiste
Jean Baptiste is 33 years old, married with two children who are 2 and 5 years old. Jean Baptiste is commonly known in the business of selling Irish potatoes and he has been in this business for about 2 years. The hours of his business are from 6 am until 7 pm every day.

Jean Baptiste has realized that he is not presently able to satisfy the demand of his customers, so he wants to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, Jean Baptiste will purchase a large quantity of Irish potatoes and he really hopes that the demand of his customers will totally be met. Once this demand is totally met, Jean Baptiste will hopefully earn a lot of profit, more than previously, and this profit will be used for a further reinvestment in his business as well as saving for a better future.
