Bonifride is 41 years old and is married with six children who are between 6 and 20 years old. She has been a self-employed businesswoman selling foodstuffs since 2000 and her business hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Although Bonifride has been in her business for about ten years, her capital is still too low to earn meaningfully. To solve this problem, she is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, she will purchase a large quantity of foodstuffs such as peas, beans, wheat, etc.

With these additional foodstuffs, Bonifride will hopefully earn more profits which, in turn, will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability in the future.
