Avenir Group's story

Fidele K. sells cartons of eggs. He has to go out to deliver eggs to his clients and to look for new clients everyday. It is hard work, but he likes it. He has been in this business since 1995. Fidele fell sick in 1997 and was hospitalized. He lost most of his clients and his business closed, as there was no one to continue running it. In 1998, after his recovery, Fidele re-launched his business with $100 of capital. His business was too small and limited in size. Gradually and with the profit generated by his business, Fidele has increased his stock to 40 cartons of eggs. Last July he joined one of Hope’s groups named “Avenir,” meaning “Future” in English, and through the loan Fidele’s business has been strengthened. (Hope is Kiva's Field Partner.) With his next loan, Fidele plans to deliver eggs to clients four days per week instead of three. He wants to build a henhouse so that he can have variety of chicken products to sell to his customers. Fidele is 52 years old. He is married and the father of seven children, who are between the ages of 2 and 21.
