A loan of $875 helped to purchase additional equipment like a scanner, one more computer, and a new, modern photocopying machine.


Didace's story

Didace is 51 years old and is married with four children. He owns a public secretariat shop where he operates the business of photocopying, typing via the use of a computer, etc. He has been operating this business for about four years and the hours of his business are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Didace needs to request a Kiva loan with the purpose of purchasing some additional equipment like a scanner, one more computer, and a new, modern photocopying machine. With this additional equipment, he hopes to earn more profits which, in turn, will allow him to increase the size of his business through attracting a larger number of customers.

If the number of his customers keeps increasing, Didace hopes to create some other sources of income as well as creating jobs for the people in his community.
