Apeli
Apeli is 45 years old and married with five children who are between 10 and 26 years old. Apeli is well known for her business selling a variety of goods, mainly foodstuffs such as rice and flour, and some other goods as shown in the photo. She has been in this business for about six years. The business hours are from 6 am until late in the evening.

Apeli needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, Apeli will increase the sale of foodstuffs and she will increase the size of her business place. If successful, she will hopefully earn more profits which will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability.
