Etienne's story

Etienne is 33 years old, married with five children who are 1, 4, 7, 9 and 12 years old. Etienne is a self-employed businessman who owns a grinding machine in his village. With this machine, he grinds a variety of foodstuffs such as sorghum, cassava, soy, wheat, etc. Etienne has owned this machine for about five years and his business hours are from 7 am until late in the evening.

Etienne needs to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. With this loan, he will hopefully buy another mill which will be used somewhere else so as to create another source of income. With this additional mill, he hopes that his daily income will increase and in addition to that, he will create another source of income. If successful, Etienne will improve the lifestyle of his family and in addition to that, he will start saving for a better future for his family.
