Theodosie is well-known in the business of selling a variety of drinks and this is her sixteenth successful year in this business. Her business operates mostly in the afternoon hours until late in the evening.
Theodosie, after realizing that her capital is too low to expand meaningfully, would like to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. Once given this loan, she hopes that her sales and her profits will increase.
If successful, Theodosie will keep expanding her business till she becomes financially stable and, in addition to that, she will be able to keep satisfying all the basic needs of her family.
