Eraste's story

Eraste is 26 years old. He is married and has two children. He has owned his small general store for about two years. Eraste sells spare parts in the store, and his business is open from 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM every day.

Eraste has requested a Kiva loan so that he can expand his shop by adding more spare parts. With the profits that he earns, Eraste plans to start saving, to pay school fees for his children, and to improve his family's situation.
