Jean De Dieu
Jean de Dieu is 26 years old and he is still single. Jean de Dieu owns a grocery store and this is his second successful year in this business. His business is open from early in the morning until late in the evening every day.

Although Jean de Dieu has been in this business for about two years, his original investment is still too low to earn enough profit from his sales. To end this, Jean de Dieu is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that he can add cakes, cookies, and some other pastries. In addition, he will sell foodstuffs like rice, different types of flour, sugar etc. With this expansion, Jean de Dieu will be able to continue his life with a successful business. The savings from additional profits that are not reinvested in his business will allow him to build his future.
