Le Chandelier 1 Group's story

Nathalie, age 40, is single with three children, aged between 3 and 12 years old. All three children are currently attending school. She is representing the Le Chandelier 1 group. Nathalie primarily sells a variety of drinks, but she also has some beignets and small cakes for sale. She has had this business for four years. She will use the loan to buy imported boxed wine. Her business strategy is to provide great customer service to her clients. She also doesn't let the merchandise get low. She keeps her shelves stocked with what her customers want.
This is Nathalie's first loan with HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. HOPE and her group are confident she will be able to pay back the loan. She would like to open a bakery in the future. She hopes her children will finish school and be able to find fulfilling work.
