Mediatrice is 38 years old and is married with three children: the first one is 17, the next is 15 and the last is 13 years old.

Mediatrice owns a business selling maize flour. She has been a businesswoman for a long time, obviously, because she has an experience of ten years in her business. However, even though she is seasoned in her business, she is not able to satisfy her customers.

Mediatrice is now requesting a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company to be used in her business. With this loan, she will be able to attract more customers which will help her to earn more profits through selling larger quantities.
