A loan of $2,025 helped a member to buy sandals.


Les Christophiens Group's story

Wisdel is the coordinator of Les Christophiens Group. He's married and has two children. He lives in northeastern Haïti, were electricity is scarce and drinking water supply is very limited.

He's been running his sandal retail business for the last ten years. Before starting it, he was a student. He hopes that this loan will help him expand his business.

Other members of the group need a loan for their retail businesses (cosmetics, beverages, etc).

Wisdel says that his main challenge is to become a bigger reseller, and that his main goal is to have a larger business, which will make it easier for him to build a larger home thanks to this loan from Kiva's partner, Esperanza International.

In this group: Wisdel, Roseguerlyne, Juline, Jocelyn, Juliette, Nadege, Suzette, Cenada*, Yolande, Elimene*
