Emile got married and has a daughter. He has been working as barman in a big hotel in his region for few years. Emile gets to know people each day by serving them regularly at the restaurant.
Emile sees that there is an opportunity to profit by offering our renewable energy products to the costumers. He would like to use a loan to buy Eneji Pwop goods and resell them through the bar. Then a Kiva loan will help Emile develop this business in clean energy retail.
