A loan of $2,700 helped a member to buy ingredients to make cakes and pastries.

Agapao 3 Group's story

Franck, age 33, is single with three children between the ages of 7 and 14. All three of his children are attending school. Franck is representing the Agapao 3 group. He has a small bakery where he sells cakes and pastries. He has been operating this bakery for three years. He will use the loan to buy flour, sugar, butter, and yeast. His business strategy is to produce a lot of cakes and other sweets for people to buy. The larger the number and variety of things he offers, the more customers he attracts to his stand.

This is Franck's first loan with HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. His group and HOPE feel confident he will repay the loan. Franck dreams of building a large business that his children can inherit one day.

In this group: Charlotte, Sonia Laurette, Franck Haulphi, Augustine Christine, Ida Josephine, Fridah Palmira Amelia
