Mike is a 36-year-old single man. He is living on his own. He’s an independent hard worker who strives to work under pressure in order to live a respectable life.

Mike spent the last five years in his bakery, preparing delicious food. He is well known in his town and people visit him from all over the neighboring areas. He always wanted to better develop his business and improve his work, but until now he earns a barely fair income. For that reason, he decided to take a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase a new oven.

He confirms that the loan will help him increase his sales, and thus his income, by 15%. And as Mike is a single man, he wishes to get married and have his own family and children.
