Beatrice is 50 years old and married with eight children who are between the ages of 8 and 24 years old. Beatrice makes a living by selling pastries in her shop and some drinks. She has been in this small business for about two years. The hours of her business are from 6 am to 9 pm every day.
After realizing that her sales can't satisfy her customers, Beatrice decided to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, Beatrice will hopefully satisfy her customers by purchasing a large quantity of beverages and pastries. If successful, Beatrice will hopefully earn more profit which will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability.
