La Grace Divine 2 (#3) Group's story

Ida, age 48, is a single mother with 2 children. One of her children is still in school. She also cares and provides for her elderly mother. Ida is representing the La Grace Divine 2 (#3) group.

She owns a small grocery stand and a restaurant. She has been operating this shop and restaurant for 2 years. She will use the loan to pay for an expansion to her grocery stand. Her business strategy is to use the food that is not selling quickly in her restaurant before it spoils. She is able to obtain good prices on her food products because she buys in bulk for use in her stand and restaurant.

Ida has received 1 previous loan from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. She has a good repayment record. She hopes to grow her grocery stand and restaurant into large businesses where she can employ many people. She wants her business success to aid her children in their studies.

In this group: Ida Floriane, Palaba Albert, Fouety Melaolie, Urget
