A loan of $850 helped to buy different styles of clothes.


Philomene's story

Philomene is 34 years old and married with two children. Philomene is commonly known for selling clothes and she has been in this business for about one year. Her business hours are from 8 am to 8 pm every day.

Philomene needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company s.a. Once given this loan, Philomene will purchase different styles of clothes. With this additional business, Philomene will hopefully earn more profits and these profits will allow her to keep reinvesting for better financial stability. In addition, she will create many sources of income in various areas, which will result in giving jobs to the people from her community.
