La Source 3 Group's story

Odette, age 55, is a widow with four children, ages 19 to 33 years old. Her youngest child is currently attending university. She is representing the La Source 3 group. Odette sells vegetables and recently started selling drinks. She used her last loan with HOPE to buy a freezer to keep her drinks in. She will use this loan to buy more drinks as well as lettuce, onions, and tomatoes.

Odette has been selling vegetables in the market for over 10 years and drinks just over a month. She is excited to have added a new product to her business. Her business strategy is to personally visit clients at their homes and deliver the merchandise they order.

Odette has received two previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. She has a good repayment record. She would like to travel abroad one day to buy merchandise to sell in Brazzaville.
