A loan of $3,425 helped a member to pay for the start-up costs of a small butcher shop.

Matondo 3 Group's story

Clementine, age 49, is a single mother with five children. She has two children still attending school. Clementine is representing the Matondo 3 group. She owns a business where she makes and sells fruit juice. She also sells tables and chairs on the side to make extra income. She will use the loan to open a small butcher shop and to buy firewood. She feels there is a need in her area for another butcher shop. She hopes to continue to make and sell her fruit juice as well. She is buying the firewood because of the lack of dependable, consistent electricity, which makes her work difficult.
Clementine has received two previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. She has a good repayment record. She hopes to continue to expand her business and to offer a large variety of meat in her shop. She would like to teach her family how to run her business and give it to them one day.

In this group: Clementine, Josephine, Mbimi Jean, Boutoto Guy, Clarisse
