Colombe Group's story

Jacques, age 56, is married with five children. Four of his children are attending school. He operates a butcher shop in a local market in Brazzaville.

He has had this business for 21 years! He has gained many valuable customers and a lot of business experiences over the years. Jacques will use the loan to buy more fish, chicken, and beef to sell in his shop. When asked about difficulties he has with his business, Jacques responded that he needs larger loans. He is a very hard working ambitious entrepreneur!

Jacques has received three previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. He has a very good repayment record. He hopes to one day be able to travel outside of Brazzaville to buy meat. He wants his children to be successful and would like to see them work for HOPE Congo.
