Jeanine is married and has four children, one of whom is currently in school. She also cares for two other children that are members of her household.

This is Jeanine's second loan cycle with HOPE Congo. She is going to use her share of this loan to purchase additional stock of used clothing for her store. She also makes fresh doughnuts and cold drinks for her customers who come to purchase clothes. Jeanine has noticed that prices in the market have been increasing, but she is working to differentiate her clothing store by providing a higher level of customer service.

In the future, Jeanine hopes that her increasing business activities will allow her to provide a high level of education to all of her children. She dreams of one day traveling abroad, to work directly with one of her suppliers.

Important Information

About HOPE Congo S.A.: HOPE Congo S.A. is a start-up microfinance institution located in Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo. As of 2009, the Republic of the Congo was the 136th-ranked country in the United Nations Development Programme’s Human Development Index. The average life expectancy is in the low 50s and food insecurity poses a constant threat to ordinary people’s well-being. Through the creation of community banks, HOPE Congo provides credit, savings, and training for entrepreneurs in Brazzaville. With their services, they aim to nourish a culture of saving and an independent community of responsible and self-sustaining entrepreneurs.

Please note that this Field Partner does not meet all of the minimum criteria for partnership with Kiva. HOPE Congo is a start-up MFI that is being fully backed by the HOPE International with an institutional guarantee. Because Kiva lenders are fully protected against institutional failure by the guarantee agreement, Kiva felt it was appropriate to override our minimum criteria in order to access this new market.

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.
