Elie is 39 years old and is married with four children. He is well-known in the business of selling Irish potatoes and has been in this business for a long time. He is very proud of his business. His business hours are from early in the morning until late in the evening.

Elie needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company to satisfy the demand of his customers by purchasing a large quantity of Irish potatoes for sale. With these additional sacks of Irish potatoes, he will hopefully earn more profits than previously. He really hopes that he will be able to keep reinvesting for better financial stability and continue taking care of his family.
