A loan of $850 helped to purchase large quantities of food like bread, biscuits and drinks to sell.

Alfred's story

Alfred is 39 years old and is married with four children aged between 5 and 13 years old. Alfred owns a canteen selling bread, biscuits, cakes and drinks. This is his second successful year in this business and his work is open from 7 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. every day. He currently employees one person to help him.

Alfred has requested a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to purchase large quantities of food like bread, biscuits, cakes and drinks to sell. With this loan, Alfred will hopefully earn more profits, which in turn will allow him to keep reinvesting and saving for better financial stability.
