Jean Claude's story

Jean Claude, 53, lives in a rural village. He is married; the couple have five children, two of whom are already independent. They are a family of peasants. Jean Claude has been working in livestock farming for about ten years. He fattens up oxen and resells them at the local market. The business is quite profitable, as he is able to secure his family's needs with his earnings. Recently, his income helped to treat his wife's illness.

Jean Claude is requesting the Kiva lenders' support in order to buy an ox and 200 kilograms of rice bran to increase its nourishment. As a Vahatra partner, Jean Claude has no difficulties in repaying his debts. His goal is to have enough saved up to pay for tuition for his three (younger) children.
