Patrique is 28 years old and single. He is commonly known for selling spare parts. He has been in this business for about two years and his business hours are from 8 am to 8 pm every day.

Patrique would like to expand his business by purchasing more spare parts to sell. To this end, he needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With these additional spare parts for sale, Patrique will hopefully earn more profits and these profits will be used to create some other sources of income for better financial stability in the future.
