A loan of $4,350 helped a member to buy more clothes to build up her clothing stock.


Prosperite 2 Group's story

Gertrude represents the Prosperite 2 Group. She is 45, married and has two children aged sixteen and eighteen years old. They are both currently attending school.


For the past twenty years Gertrude has sold clothes at the market. She has gained a good reputation in her community, and many people know about her shop. Her business strategy is to publicize her business in her community.


Gertrude has received six previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner, and has a good repayment record. She is applying for a 2,200,000 XAF loan for her group and will use her portion to buy more clothes to build up her clothing stock.


In the future she would like to sell clothes in bulk to vendors instead of being a vendor herself. She hopes her business thrives far into the future.

In this group: Gertrude, Edith, Serge
