Anne was born in 1964 and is married with three children: the first one is 13; the next is 15; and the last one is 19.

Anne is the businesswoman in the family and there is no one else in the family who makes money. For that reason, she has to work hard so that she provides all the basic needs of her family.

Anne owns a business selling small fish and she said that this business is profitable. She is seasoned in her business, obviously, because she has an experience of eight years. She employs two people from her community as helpers so that her business runs well.

Anne is now requesting Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company for the purpose of growing her business through purchasing more sacks of small fish. With the loan, Anne will be able to satisfy her customers, which is the best way of earning enough profits to use in her business and in her family as well.
