Florence is a self-employed businesswoman who is commonly known in the business of selling dishes such as saucepans, thermoses and bowls, as her picture indicates. Florence has been in this business for about 5 years and her business hours are from 8 am to 6 pm every day.
Florence needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. On receiving this loan, Florence will expand her business through purchasing different types of dishes for sale. With these different types of dishes, Florence will hopefully earn more profits which in turn will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability and continue building a secure future for her family.
