Jeannette was born in 1972 and is married with four children aged 4 to 13. Jeannette’s husband is an evangelist. Jeannette owns a business selling maize flour; her business is well-known and organized as well. This business is profitable and that is the reason why it was chosen by her. Jeannette has an experience of 8 years and employs two people from her community as helpers so that her business runs well. Jeannette's shop is open from 6 in the morning to 6 in the evening every day except on Saturday.
Jeannette is now requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company for the purpose of expanding her business through purchasing rice as an additional product in her shop. Once this business is done, Jeannette will be able to attract more customers which is the best way of earning more profit.
