A loan of $1,025 helped to buy shoes, sandals, and children's dresses to sell.

Flore's story

Flore, who is 40 years old, is married with three children. All of her children are in school. She has a stand in a local market where she sells shoes, sandals, and children's dresses. She has had this business for six years. She will use the loan to buy more shoes, sandals, and dresses to sell in her stand.

Her business strategy is to provide excellent customer service by being friendly and welcoming to the customers. The increasing price of shoes and sandals from her supplier has been difficult. She is thankful to have the loan to be able to have more negotiating power.

Flore has received three loans from Kiva's partner HOPE Congo. She has a very good repayment record. She wants to one day become a shoe and sandal wholesaler herself. Flore hopes to buy land and build a home for her family.
