Fabien is 32 years old and is married with two children who are 1 and 5 years old.

Fabien has owned a motorcycle since 2005 which he uses for his transportation business. He is very proud of his motorcycle as it allows him to earn money for taking care of his family.

Although Fabien has owned his motorcycle for about five years, his savings are still too low to buy another motorcycle. To solve this problem, he needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. Added to his savings, this loan will hopefully allow him to buy another motorcycle.

With this second motorcycle, Fabien really hopes that his profits, as well as his savings, will be improved.
