A loan of $4,500 helped a member to pay for DVDs and games.

La Source 2 Group's story

Giscard, age 42, is single with four children, ages 1 to 23 years old. He has two children currently attending school. He is representing the La Source 2 group. Giscard has an electronics game room where he has TVs and video-game consoles for people to use by the hour. These are very common in Congo as many people do not have DVD players and game consoles at home. He has had this small business for three years.

He will use the loan to pay for new DVDs and video games. His business strategy is to offer great customer service. He feels the way you work and interact with your customers is very important.

Giscard has received two previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. He has a good repayment record. He hopes to have a large building for his game room one day.

In this group: Giscard, Melanie Modeste, Soumalai, Anoinette, Martine, Ginette, Antoinette
