La Gloire De Dieu 1 Group's story

She will use her portion of the loan to buy hair extensions, fake eyelashes, and lipstick. Her business strategy is to offer lower prices for customers who buy more at one time. She is able to sell her products quickly and at a profit. This is Arlette’s first loan with HOPE Congo, a Kiva partner. The HOPE organization and her fellow group members believe she will use this money wisely, and repay the loan.
