Vuvu is the leader of the Community Bank named “Mabongisi ya Nkolo Plus” which is composed of 12 members united in solidarity for receiving Kiva loans with the goal of developing their businesses.

Vuvu is 41 and married, and has been part of the micro-enterprise world since 2004. She operates a general store to the west of Kinshasa. She has acquired solid experience in this area and works hard with good management skills in order to realize her dream of one day opening two large stores in Kinshasa. She would also like to achieve financial independence through her business that earns about $80 per week. She works to the best of her abilities and uses her contacts so that she might achieve her goals.

She is a trustworthy client of the MFI HOPE RDC, having three times obtained and correctly repaid loans. She will increase her stock of merchandise with her next loan by buying sacks of rice, sugar and milk and reselling them at a profit. Vuvu has seven children between the ages of 6 and 22 years old. All of them attend school.

About HOPE DRC

HOPE International has been providing small business loans and savings services to thousands of entrepreneurs in DRC since 2004. HOPE DRC targets small business owners who can use loans to increase their inventories or invest in assets that have the potential to increase their incomes. Funds from Kiva lenders play a major role in expanding access to affordable, flexible capital for micro-entrepreneurs, 80% of whom are women.

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.
