In this Group: Serge, Francisca, Rosalie, Herve, Teddy, Gertrude, Melanie, Irma, Bijou, Clarisse
Serge is one of the members of the group White 2 (2), which consists of 10 micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Serge, who is married and has two children, ages 8 and 10, is very excited to be receiving his third loan from HOPE Congo after having repaid his previous loans.

In business for more than 10 years, Serge sells locally grown fruits and vegetables. With this new loan he will be able to buy more of them to further grow his inventory. He says that one of his strategies for success is selling his produce not only to individual clients but also to neighborhood restaurants.

Serge has big dreams for the future of his business and family. He hopes to one day expand his activities to include a store that sells charcoal and gasoline. With increased profits he hopes to be able to pay for his children to attend the best university in Congo. He thanks you all for your support!!!

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
