A loan of $4,075 helped a member to buy a refrigerator and small generator.

Les Enfants Unis 2 (#2) Group's story

Silvere, age 37, is a single father with two-year-old twin boys. He owns a butcher shop in a local market.

He has operated this business for one and a half years. He purposely located himself in a specific community where there was not a butcher shop. He feels this has been an important factor in his business' success.

Silvere will buy a refrigerator and a small generator. The electricity in Brazzaville is unreliable and, if it is off for too long, his meat will spoil. The generator will allow him to keep his freezers and refrigerator running even if the electricity goes out.

Silvere has received three previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. He has a very good repayment record. As he continues to grow, he wants eventually to transport live fish to Brazzaville from the coast. This will allow him to stock a greater variety of fish as well as offer very fresh fish to his customers. He hopes that his two boys will be successful and wants to be able to provide them with a good education.
