Esther is 37 years old, married, and has three children, between the ages of five and 16 years old. Esther is commonly known for her business of selling clothes and has been in this business for about eight years. She keeps her business open from 8 am until 5 pm every day.
Esther needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, Esther will purchase different styles of clothes to sell in her business. With this profit from the loan, she will hopefully earn more profit. Which in turn will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability and to pay for medical insurance.
