Jean, after realizing that the number of his customers has increased, wants to open another business area where he will operate the same business. To end this, he is requesting a Kiva loan so that he can purchase an additional grinding machine.
With this additional machine, Jean hopes that he will be able to satisfy his customers and, in addition to that, earn a lot of profits. These profits will hopefully allow him to continue taking care of his family and start saving for his future.
