La Colombe 2 Group's story

Marguerite, age 60, is married with six children, ages 23 to 42. She is representing the La Colombe 2 group. Marguerite makes and sells besap juice, a very popular fruity drink sold on the streets of Brazzaville. She has had this business for over 30 years. She has gained a valuable reputation in her community and many people come to her to buy besap. Her business strategy is to offer friendly customer service and give returning clients small gifts.

Marguerite has received five previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. She has a good repayment record. She would like to travel to Chad, where besap originates from, and buy the products to make besap.
