In this Group: Ange Felicien, Alexis, Arnaud, Helene, Josiane, Evariste, Philomene, Ida, Jean
Ange, age 40, is single, with no children. He is representing the group, La Puissance 2 (2). Ange has a game room where he provides video game consoles, TVs, and DVD players for people to use. In Congo, many people do not have their own game consoles, so they pay to go to a game room. He has had this business for seven years.

Ange will use the loan to pay for a machine that plays and burns CDs. His business strategy is to offer good prices for the use of his machines. He encourages his customers to buy more use by, for example, charging XAF 100 for one soccer match, but XAF 150 for two soccer matches.

Ange has received one previous loan from HOPE Congo S.A., Kiva's partner. He has a good repayment record with HOPE Congo S.A. In the future, he hopes to buy a computer for his business.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
