La Puissance 1 Group's story

Yvon, age 40, is married with three children, aged 2 to 15 years old. He has two children currently attending school. He is representing the La Puissance 1 group. Yvon has a grocery stall where he sells a variety of things. He has been operating for nine years. He will use the loan to buy more rice, canned goods, and oil. His business strategy is to keep all the products his customers want stocked at all times. He has found that if you don't have a good consistent stock of merchandise customers quit coming.

Yvon has received three previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. He has a good repayment record. He hopes to have an actual building for his store in the future. He wants his children to continue their education and find a good job.
