Anisie is 33 years old and married with three children, who are 3, 5 and 8 years old. Anisie is well known for her business selling a variety of goods such as cosmetics, drinking water and some other beverages. Anisie has been in her business for about 5 years. The business hours are from 6 am to 10 pm every day.

Although Anisie has been in business for about 5 years, her capital is still too low to expand meaningfully. To address this, she needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company to purchase a large quantity of foodstuffs such as rice, Irish potatoes, beans, etc. If successful, Anisie will hopefully increase her sales as well as profits. This, in turn, will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability and will improve the standard of living of her family.
