Monique has requested a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to expand her business by purchasing more body lotion, sacks of rice, sacks of sugar and cooking oil. Monique will hopefully earn more profits, which in turn will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability, and she will keep providing all the basic needs for her family.
