A loan of $5,400 helped a member to pay for chicken, tripe, pork, and turkey for his butcher shop.


Christ Vivant Group's story

Richard, age 46, is married with 3 children, ages 9 to 19 years old. All 3 of his children are currently in school. He is representing the Christ Vivant group. Richard owns a butcher shop and has had this business for 5 years. He will use the loan to buy more meat for his shop, including chicken, tripe, pork, and turkey. His business strategy is to put the meat in different sized groups. The larger groups with more meat are cheaper per gram than the smaller groups of meat. He is able to sell more meat this way.
Richard has received 3 previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. He has a good repayment record. He wants to have a large butcher shop one day with a big sign advertising his business. He hopes his children will finish university and be able to travel abroad one day.

In this group: Richard, Constance, Elise Patricia, Nathalie, Germaine
