Grace is 31 years old and single. Grace has owned a shop since 2009 where she sells different kinds of drinks. Her shop is open from 8 am to 10 pm every day.

Grace needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company to expand her business by purchasing additional drinks and different kinds of pastries. If successful, she will hopefully earn more profits which will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability. In addition, she will continue saving for her future.
