A loan of $2,200 helped a member to pay for manioc and firewood.

Prosperite 4 Group's story

Felicite, age 53, is the single mother of four children, ages 20 to 29 years old. She has one child currently attending school. She is representing the Prosperite 4 group. Felicite sells manioc and firewood at a stall in a local market. She has been selling for over 20 years! Over the years she has gained a good reputation in the community and loyal customers. She will use the loan to buy more manioc and firewood to sell. Manioc is a very popular Congolese food that is made from the roots of the local cassava plants. It is a white color with a corn meal consistency. Her business strategy is to give a small gift of wood or manioc to her customers so that they will return next time. Felicite has received four previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner, and she has a good repayment record.
