A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for improvements on his work space and to buy sewing thread, lining, and zippers.


Ange's story

Ange wants to continue to invest in his business and increase his capacity. The loan he received before allowed him to buy sewing materials in bulk at a discounted price. He will use this loan to make improvements to his workspace as well as buy more needed sewing materials including lining, zippers, and thread. Ange hopes to open additional tailor shops in other areas in Brazzaville as his business expands due to the loans. He also dreams of one day opening a school to teach sewing skills to aspiring tailors. Ange has a great repayment record with Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo.
