Amour Du Prochain 2 (#1) Group's story

Serge, age 44, is single with two school age children. He also provides and cares for his elderly father. Serge is representing the Amour du Prochain 2 (#1) group. He operates a creamery in a local market. In Congo it is common for individuals to own ice cream machines and serve soft serve ice cream on the street. He has had this business for five years. He will use the loan to buy milk, sugar, oil, salt, and flour. His biggest difficulty is the inconsistent electricity in the city, but he has found ways to work around this to stay profitable. He has overcome this problem and has continued to advance his business.

Serge has received three previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. He has a good repayment record. He hopes to one day buy a parcel of land and build a home for his family.

In this group: Christian Serge, Chimelle Theodora Sidonie, Contant Victoire, Nina Charlotte
