Celine's story

Celine is 38 years old and married with seven children who are between 1 and 15 years old. Celine lives by selling a variety of goods in her shop and this is her sixth successful year in this business. Celine opens her shop from 7 am until 6 am every day.

Celine, after realizing that her capital is still too low to expand meaningfully, is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, Celine will hopefully earn more profits through the sale of foodstuffs as they are highly demanded by a large number of customers. This in turn, will allow her to keep reinvesting and saving for better financial stability.
