A loan of $6,325 helped a member to pay for soft drinks and juice to sell.

Redempteur 2 Group's story

Roberte, age 49, is a single mother of four children aged 8 to 25 years old. Three of her children currently attend school. She also provides for her 18-year-old niece. Roberte is representing the Redempteur 2 group.

Roberte sells soft drinks and juice and has been operating this small business for six years. She will use her portion of the loan to buy a large stock of drinks to sell. Her business strategy is to buy her merchandise in bulk at a discounted price and sell it piece by piece.

Roberte has received four previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. She has a good repayment record. In the future, she wants to buy drinks from outside of Congo and import them to sell in her store. She hopes her children are able to find work after they are finished with school.

In this group: Roberte, Lea Chantal, Jean Joseph, Godefroy, Marie, Richard
