A loan of $875 helped to buy cosmetics to sell.

Chantal's story

Chantal is 26 years old and married. She has two children, ages 1 and 5 years old. Chantal is well-known as a proven entrepreneur. She sells cosmetics, mainly body lotion. This is her second year in this business, which is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.

Chantal is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company to expand her business by adding more cosmetic products. Her neighborhood is the right place to sell cosmetics, because there are boarding schools in the area and many students who like to buy cosmetics. With this business expansion, Chantal will keep saving for further reinvestment in her business. Withbthis loan, Chantal has a hope of a better future.
