Marie Claire is 30 years old, married with 4 children. Marie Claire earns her living by selling a variety of goods in her shop and this is her second successful year in this business. Marie Claire's shop hours are from 7 am until 7 pm every day.

After realizing that her capital is still too low to expand meaningfully, Marie Claire is requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, Marie Claire will hopefully earn more profit, which in turn will allow her to keep reinvesting and saving for better financial stability. In addition, she will also improve the living conditions of her family.
