Matondo 4 Group's story

Blood is a 30-year-old single woman with no children. She represents the Matondo 4 group. She knits clothes, doilies, and other items to sell in a local market. She has been doing this for the past 5 years, and has become very talented. She will use the loan to buy yarn, string, and other materials needed to knit. Her main problem is the scarcity of the materials she needs. She will buy the materials in bulk with this loan. Blood has received two previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. She has a good repayment record. She dreams of opening a training school to teach others how to knit and do other crafts. She hopes to continue to take the loans because they help improve her family's life.
