Protais's story

Protais is a humble and hardworking teacher who runs a small hotel in his community. Protais started this business from his savings from his pay as a teacher. The small hotel has five bedrooms and a restaurant. The hotel has been attracting many clients. Because it is near a refugee camp, UNHCR staff often stay for a few days at the hotel.

Protais decided to keep his job as a teacher because he wants to give back to the community by providing knowledge to primary students who are mostly refugees from Congo. He usually teaches in the morning hours and he goes to the hotel right after. His wife and brother help him run the business while he is away teaching at the primary school.

He wants to be able to offer his guests better living conditions. So he is requesting a loan to make improvements to the hotel rooms by changing furniture, adding televisions, and providing internet.
