Pascasie was born in 1962 and is married with three children. She is a businesswoman, owning a business selling clothes while her husband works in a bank. This family works hard so that they progress with their family through providing the necessary support for their children.

Pascasie knows what she’s doing in her business because she has an experience of ten years. The hours of her business are from eight in the morning to six in the evening, every day.

Pascasie is now requesting a Kiva loan for the purpose of expanding her business; once her business is expanded, she will be able to satisfy her clients, which is one way of earning profits. With the profits expected, she will reinvest in her business and solve her family’s financial problems.
