A loan of $3,075 helped a member to buy sugar and flour.


Les Enfants Unis 2 (#1) Group's story

Marina, age 22, is a single mother with two children. Both of her children are attending school. She runs a small bakery where she sells pastries and cakes in a local market. She has had this business for seven years. Marina will use the loan to buy sugar and flour. Her strategies are to offer good quality products and to bake and sell the most popular products. She tries to provide what her customers like best. Marina has received three previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. She has a very good repayment record. The rain poses a great difficulty to her because her stand in the market does not keep out the rain. She hopes to build a more fortified stand and, as she grows, to eventually build a boutique. She will continue to receive loans from HOPE Congo because they are helping her to expand her business.
