Fabien has been a self-employed businessman wholesaling sacks of Irish potatoes and he has been in this business for a long time. The hours of his business are from early in the morning until late in the evening hours.

Fabien has a problem of not satisfying the demand of his customers, so he is now requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company which in turn will allow him to increase the quantity of Irish potatoes he sells. With this additional quantity, Fabien expects to earn more profits, which in turn will allow him to be financially stable and continue taking good care of his family.
