Yusufu's story

Yusufu is 52 years old, is married with five children, and he takes care of two dependents. His wife also sells cosmetics but they do not work together. Their children and dependents are between 7 and 26 years old.

Yusufu is a self-employed businessman who has sold cosmetics products for the past ten years. He is a proven entrepreneur with a track record of success. The hours of his business require that he works from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day except Sunday.

After having the idea of expanding his business, Yusufu is requesting his first loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company. He will use the loan to purchase more cosmetics products which are in demand by a large number of his customers.

With this loan, Yusufu will work hard to make his business successful. If this strategy succeeds, he hopes to earn more money, which will help him to continue paying school fees for his children and dependents. In addition, he and his wife are committed to building a secure future for their family.
