A loan of $400 helped to buy a copier and a color printer..


Hervé's story

Hervé, age 40, is a single father of a 4-year-old child who goes to school. He runs a cybercafé, which he opened in a district of the capital a year ago. A great location, combined with his good nature and enthusiasm have helped him to build a substantial customer base whose needs he can hardly meet due to a shortage of equipment.

Hervé is seeking a loan to buy a copier and a color printer to help meet the needs of his many customers and to bolster his sales.

He will use the profits earned through this loan to reinvest in his business and diversify his services, and to take care of his child.
