Ancilla is 46 years old and is married with eight children between the ages of 8 and 26. She also takes care of two dependents, who are 4 and 8 years old. Ancilla has been struggling to provide for her large family by selling drinks she makes from sorghum.

Although Ancilla has thirty years of experience in this business, her earned profits are still too low to care for her children and dependents. She has requested a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to expand her business. With this loan, she will purchase a large quantity of sorghum, which will help her increase the sales of her drinks.
