Samuel
Samuel is 33 years old and married with one child. Samuel owns a shop where he sells a variety of goods such as printers, notebooks, and some other items as the picture indicates. Samuel has been in this business for about two years and the business hours are from 7 am to 6 pm every day.

Samuel needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, Samuel will purchase some additional items to satisfy the demands of his customers. If successful, Samuel will hopefully earn more profits, which in turn will allow him to keep reinvesting for better financial stability. In addition to that, he will create some other sources of income in order to create more jobs for the people in his community.
