A loan of $3,200 helped a member to pay for zippers, patterns, and other sewing items.


Agapao 2 Group's story

Jean, age 46, is single with one 12-year-old child who is currently attending school. He also cares and provides for his nephew. Jean is representing Agapao 2 Group. He has a small sewing supplies shop. He has been operating this business for 2 years. He will use the loan to buy zippers, patterns, and other materials used by tailors. His business strategy is to go to the shops or homes of tailors with his merchandise. This way the tailors do not have to leave their home or business to buy materials. He also sells his items on credit to regular customers.

This is Jean's first loan with Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. HOPE and his group are confident he will repay the loan. He hopes to continue to grow his profits and wants to take larger loans from HOPE in the future.

In this group: Jean Bruno, Leocadie Euladie Lydia, Annie, Marie Celeste, Ifran Thaqis, Jean De Dieu, Edwige Amma
