John B., aged 41 and married, was elected as the president of the Community Bank named “CPK II Plus”, which consists of 19 members united in solidarity to receive loans from Kiva through IMF HOPE RDC with the goal of developing their businesses.

John sells iron bars, pipes, etc. at the market located west of Kinshasa. He started his business in 1990 by selling duplicating paper. John is happy right now as he is going to be able to buy iron bars and water pipes with the loan, have a greater range of stock, and be able to meet his customers' demand.

John makes a profit of US$100 per week. With the money he earns, he hopes to provide financial support for his family. His dream is to someday open a hardware and a clothing store. John has four children aged between 3 and 11 years. Three of them go to school. He also takes care of five children left by his relatives.

HOPE International has been providing small business loans and savings services to thousands of entrepreneurs in DRC since 2004.

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.
