Alexis is 35 years old and is married with four children. He owns a piece of land where he grows tomatoes and he has been in this business for about five years. He starts working on his land early in the morning and finishes late in the evening hours.

Alexis needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company to purchase a machine to be used in fertilizing his tomatoes. With this machine, he hopes that his harvest will increase which, in turn, will increase his sales as well as his profits.

If successful, Alexis will be able to continue taking care of his family and, in addition to that, he will keep finding out how to expand his business.
