Cantave is the coordinator of his Refuge de Dumas group. He is married and has five children. He lives in the town of Dumas in Haiti, where electricity is rare and water very limited.

Cantave has managed his business for the past six years. Before he began trading he was at school.

He would like to use this loan to invest in the purchase of oxen and hopes that the loan will enable him to expand his business.

The other members of the Refuge group need loans for businesses such as the sale of charcoal, rice and fish.

Cantave says that his principal challenge is the constant lack of buyers. He says that his main aim is to expand his business and his dream is to buy a lorry to transport the animals.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
