He owns and operates an ice cream machine. He has been selling ice cream for 3 years. He will use the loan to buy sugar, milk, flavoring and stabilizer for the ice cream machine. It is common in Brazzaville for people to put their soft serve ice cream machines on the street and sell ice cream near bus stops and other busy areas. His business strategy is to make a lot of ice cream during the hot season, as this is his peak season. Jaime has received 2 previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. He has a good repayment record. He wants to have a large ice cream shop one day. He also wants to begin producing his own cones. He will need to buy a machine for this.
