Jacques is the chairman of the Community Bank named “Bon Berger Plus” which is composed of 20 micro-entrepreneurs. The members are united by the same goal — to grow their businesses by loans received from Kiva through IMF HOPE RDC.

Jacques is 55 years old. His main activity is to sell beverages. He buys them in bulk and resells them retail at profit. He sells his products daily at the market in his area located east of Kinshasa.

He is a trustworthy client of the MFI HOPE RDC, having tree times obtained and correctly repaid loans. His next loan will allow him to buy twenty five crates of beverages to increase his sales in order to make a better profit. The business makes a profit of about US$100 per week. The aim of this loan is to reinforce his working capital and provide food for his family. He is married and the father of six children. Four of them attend school.

Additional Information


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.
