Kundane Group's story

Gérard has been in business running a cafeteria (milk, bread, …) for eight years.

This is his first Turame loan. With the KIVA loan he is obtaining, he is going to increase his capital and purchase some milk to resell, so as to earn more.

In the coming years, he would like to establish a bistro and see his children educated.
