Oliva is 40 years old and is married with four children aged 1, 6, 8 and 10 years old.
Oliva struggles in selling soft drinks, pastries (cakes) and boiled eggs. She has an experience of five years in this business and the hours of her business are from the morning hours until late in the evening.
Oliva, after realizing that her clientele was increasing day by day to the extent that she is not able to meet their demand, needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company s.a. She really hopes that it will allow her to to expand her business a lot through adding more drinks and pastries.
With these additional goods, Oliva will hopefully earn more profits and these profits will allow her to continue taking care of her family and start saving for a better business future.
