Les Dix Commandements 1 Group's story

Durel, age 31, is single and has no children, but he provides for his 7-year-old nephew and 19-year-old sister. He is representing the Les Dix Commandements 1 group.

Durel has a game room where customers come to play video and computer games. He also sells phone cards at his game room. He has been operating this business for three years. As many people do not have their own game consoles in Congo they go to games rooms that provide the TV, console, and a variety of games. These are very popular around Brazzaville. He plans to use the loan to buy phone cards and more video games in order to keep an up-to-date variety for his customers to play.

Durel has received three previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. He has a good repayment record. He aims to buy other games shops around the city as he expands.

In this group: Durel, Clardy, Michel, Ella, Jean Yvon, Fredoiline
