Jean Baptise Desire
Jean Baptiste is 55 years old and married with five children. Jean Baptiste is commonly for selling a variety of drinks and this is his third successful year in this business.

Although Jean Baptiste has been in this business for about three years, his profits are still too low to cover all the basic needs of his family and save for his future. To end this, he needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, he will be able to satisfy the demands of his customers as well as the basic needs of his family. In addition, he will keep reinvesting in his business for better financial stability.
