Source De Guihon Plus Group's story

Alfred is the leader of the community bank named “Source de Guihon Plus,” which is composed of 11 members united in solidarity for receiving Kiva loans with the goal of developing their businesses.

Alfred is 56 years old, married and the father of five children whose ages vary between 10 and 20 years old. Three of them go to school. His main business is to offer people a way to carry their burdens or luggage via rickshaws for a fee.

He has been part of the micro-enterprise world since 1982 doing the same activity. He has acquired solid experience in this area and works hard with good management skills in order to realize his dream of one day opening another unit of production in his environment. He would also like to achieve financial independence through his business that earns him $60 per week.

Alfred is a trustworthy client of the MFI HOPE RDC, having 14 times obtained and correctly repaid loans. He will buy two more rickshaws with his next loan in order to generate additional profits.
