Sylvere's story

Sylvere is 31 years old and single. He takes care of two relatives who are 12 and 16 years old.

Sylvere is a self-employed businessman. He sells a variety of goods, such as cosmetics products and foodstuffs (bread, rice, sugar, cooking oil, etcetera). His shop is open from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. daily. He employs two people to help him.

Sylvere has now requested a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to purchase a large quantity of bread, sugar and rice, as they are in high demand. With this large quantity, he will also start wholesaling. In doing so, Sylvere hopes to earn more profits which in turn will allow him to renovate his house and continue paying school fees for his two relatives.
