Theogene is 31 years old and is married with four children who are between 6 and 10 years old.

Theogene is commonly known in the business of selling a variety of drugs in his pharmacy and he has been in this business for about three years. The hours of his business are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.

Theogene is now requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company which will allow him to expand his pharmacy through purchasing a large quantity of drugs to sell as well as satisfying the demand of his customers.

With this business satisfaction, Theogene will hopefully earn more profits which, in turn, will allow him to keep reinvesting in his business for better financial stability. In addition, he will be able to continue to take care of his family.
