Agapao 3 Group's story

Marie, age 53, is married with two children, ages 26 and 30. She is representing the Agapao 3 group. Marie makes homemade fruit juice and sells it in the market. She has been doing this for six years. She will use the loan to buy sugar, fresh fruit, and packaging materials. Her business strategy is to walk around to different congested areas with her juice kept cold in portable coolers. She is able to sell a lot in one day if she visits many busy areas.

Marie has received three previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. She has a good repayment record. She hopes to export her juice to other countries one day.

In this group: Marie Ann, Pamela, Ceintia, Praxede
