Néhémie Plus Group's story

Déborah B.'s main commercial activity is a shop that she manages herself. She began her business in 2002 selling purified water. Despite the difficulties she encountered, her courage and determination to realize her dream of opening a shop selling sweet drinks motivated her to persevere by joining a Hope RDC group named "Néhémie" to benefit from loans. Her shop has prospered thanks to the reinvestment of her profits and her good management. She has obtained three loans, which strengthened her business and which she repaid completely on time. With the next loan, she will buy bags of sugar, milk, and other items to boost her stock and resell with the aim of increasing her income. Her shop is located on a mountain to the east of Kinshasa. Déborah is married, 45 years old, and has 6 children whose ages vary from 12 to 19. Five of her children are in secondary school.
