La Richesse 2 (#1) Group's story

Judicael, age 35, is married and has a 9-month-old baby. He also cares and provides for his father. Judicael is representing the La Richesse 2 #1 group.

Judicael owns a barbershop for men. He has had this business for 4 years and has been able to acquire many loyal customers. He will use the loan to buy a generator for his shop because the electricity in Brazzaville is very inconsistent. He will use the rest of the loan to buy general hair supplies that he uses often. His business strategy is to offer friendly customer service and to keep his shop clean and looking nice.

Judicael has received 3 previous loans from Kiva’s partner, HOPE Congo. He has a good repayment record. He hopes to use future loans to buy comfortable salon chairs for his shop. He is also saving some profits to help pay for his child’s future education.

In this group: Judicael, Edwige, Georgine, Amelie
