A loan of $550 helped to buy PVC pipes, faucets, electronic equipment, light bulbs, and cables.


Noel Nestor's story

Our client, aged 48, is unmarried and the father of four children who range in age from 6 to 18. Having already benefited from several HOPE loans, he is now on his third loan cycle. His sales have increased from 80,000 to 120,000 francs per day. He has saved a considerable amount of money and has repaid without difficulties. With his profits, he is in the process of expanding his business from day to day.

With this third loan, he is going to buy PVC pipes, cables, electrical wires, light bulbs, faucets, screws, sparkplugs, and anything his customers need. He is intent on achieving his goal of opening a hardware store and going to East Africa and to Asia for his supplies.
