Martha owns a small shop which sells shoes and clothes and she has an experience of five years in her business. She employs one person in her business as a helper so that her business runs well. Martha is the second person in the white shirt on the left side. Martha and her group have requested a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to buy more cloth, shoes, African-print cloth, etc. With her increased profits, Martha hopes to build her own house and to reinvest in her business.
