A loan of $5,950 helped a member to pay for phone credits to resell at his stand.


Bolingo 2 (2) Group's story

Gabin, age 38, is single with a five-month-old daughter. He is representing the Bolingo 2 (2) group.

Gabin sells phone credits from several different phone companies. Normally, cell phones in Brazzaville do not have contracts. Instead, people buy phone credits from vendors, and then put the minutes on their phone. Gabin will use the loan to buy more phone credits. His business strategy is to set up his stand in a busy area, and sell as much as he can.

Gabin has received three previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. He has a good repayment record. He hopes to have more stands around Brazzaville in the future.

In this group: Gabin Brice Patrick, Dorian, Felicien, Clarisse, Natacha, Luc, Judith, Nathan
