A loan of $1,000 helped increasing his inventory of lamp fuel.


Stéphane's story

Born in Aklakou in 1980, Stéphane G. is married and the father of two. This responsibility obliged him to take on income-producing work. He opted to sell lamp fuel. Known by his customers for his generosity and effort, Mr. G. has been working in this type of business for over ten years. He has now mastered the intricacies of his business, which has earned him the nickname « PAPA BOUDE ».

He is now requesting a loan of $1,000 to increase his inventory in order to meet the demand, which is growing constantly. Mr. G. will then be able to achieve some improvement in living conditions for his family.

Translated from French by Daniel Kuey, Kiva volunteer:

Monsieur G. Stéphane, né en 1980 à Aklakou est marié et père de deux enfants. Cette responsabilité l’oblige à entreprendre des activités génératrices de revenus. Il a opté pour la vente du pétrole lampant. Reconnu par ses clients pour sa générosité et son effort, G. Stéphane exerce ce type de commerce il y a plus de dix ans déjà. Aujourd’hui, il a la maîtrise des rouages de cette activité, ce qui lui fait porter le surnom de « PAPA BOUDE ».

Il sollicite aujourd’hui un crédit de $1000 pour augmenter son stock afin de satisfaire la demande qui ne cesse d’accroître. Par là Monsieur G. Stéphane pourra atteindre une amélioration des conditions de vie de sa famille.
