Mwamini is 44 years old, married with four children. Mwamini is widely known in the business of selling different styles of clothes. She has been in this business for about 13 years and her business hours are from 7 am until 7 pm every day.

Mwamini needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, Mwamini will expand her business through purchasing more styles of clothes which will mainly include styles for young people because these styles are highly demanded. With this additional clothing for sale, Mwamini will hopefully earn more profits and these profits will allow her to keep reinvesting for a better financial stability in the future.
