Prosperite 4 Group's story

Laurent represents the Prosperite 4 group. He is 54, married and has five children aged two to 24 years. Four of them are currently attending school.

For the past three years Laurent has had a business selling car parts and motor oil. His business strategy is to be attentive to clients and offer them friendly customer service.

Laurent has received six previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner, and has a good repayment record. He is now applying for a 2,900,000 XAF loan for his group and plans to use his portion of the loan to buy more motor oil to stock in his store. He hopes to continue to develop his business and open up more car parts stores around Brazzaville in the future.

Laurent dreams of making a large amount of money to save and give to his children when he dies. In Congo, funerals are very expensive and many families go into debt trying to pay for everything. As well as wanting to leave his children a small inheritance, he doesn't want to burden them with funeral expenses.

In this group: Laurent, Beatrice, Lydie, Yolande
