Bonne Semence 2 (1) Group's story

Slim, age 43, is married with a 13-year-old son. His son is currently attending school. He is representing the Bonne Semence 2 (1) group. Slim has an electronics shop where he sells a variety of items. He has had this business for over 10 years and has gained a good understanding of electronics in this time. He will use the loan to buy cell phones, USB drives, and cameras to sell in his shop. His business strategy is to not only sell individual items, but to sell in bulk to some customers as well.

Slim has received five previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. He has a good repayment record. In the future, he would like to work in micro-finance and partner with HOPE. He sees what a difference these loans make in his community. He hopes his son will work in communications or electronics one day as well.
