Jean De Dieu
Jean de Dieu is 40 years old and is married with three children. He owns a shop where he sells a large quantity of foodstuffs such as sorghum, maize, peas, etc. He has been in this business for about seven years and his business hours are from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.

Jean de Dieu needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company to expand the size of his business place and, in addition to that, to purchase an additional quantity of foodstuffs such as rice, wheat, peas, etc.

If he is successful, Jean de Dieu will hopefully earn more profits which, in turn, will allow him to create many sources of income and create more jobs for the people in his community.
