Lucie is 23 years old, married with one child who is two years old. Lucie is a self-employed businesswoman who is in the business of selling new shirts for men. She has been in this business for about 4 years; her business is open 7 am to 6 pm every day.

Although Lucie has been in this business for about 4 years, her capital is still too low to expand meaningfully. To end this situation, she needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, she will hopefully earn more profits through the sale of a big number of shirts which in turn will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability. In addition to that, she will continue taking care of her family.
