Jean Marie Vianey
Jean Marie Vianey is 58 years old, married with 5 children who are 8, 14, 18, 20 and 22 years old. Jean Marie Vianey is well-known in the business of selling meat. He has been in this business for about 5 years and the hours of his business are from 7 am to 8 pm every day.

After realizing that his capital is still too low to expand meaningfully, Jean Marie Vianey realizes he needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company which in turn will allow him to increase his sales of meat. With these increased sales, he really hopes that his profits will also increase. If all his business process is successful, Jean Marie Vianey will hopefully start saving for a better future and in addition to that, he will improve the life style of his family.
