A loan of $2,275 helped a member to pay for fruit to sell at her stand.

L'endurance 2 (#1) Group's story

Hortence, 47, is married and has five children, ages 11 to 25 years old. She has four children currently attending school. Her grandson also lives with her and she provides for him as well.

Hortence represents the L'endurance 2 (#1) group. She has a stand in the market where she sells fruit. She has been selling fruit for eight years! She will use the loan to buy avocados, pineapples, mangoes, and other fruits. Her business strategy is to buy a large sack of fruit in bulk from a village outside of Brazzaville and sell it in the market. Fruit bought directly from the villages is cheaper than buying from a supplier already in Brazzaville.

Hortence has received three previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. She has a good repayment record. She wants to continue to grow her operation and be able to send her children to the local university.
