Mose's story

Since 2005, Mose N. has been in the world of micro-enterprises. Her initial business involved selling drums of palm oil and kerosene. The times and the environment have lead her to open a shop, which she still manages today.

To realize her dream, Moses decided to become a client of the micro-finance institution HOPE RDC. She has received seven loans from this Institution, and she repaid them correctly. The next loan will be used to buy goods, such as canned food, tomatoes, sardines, prepaid cards, etc….for bolstering the stock of merchandise in her shop. Her business is located on a mountain, east of the city of Kinshasa.

Mose is 53 years old, a widow, and the mother of three girls and seven boys, ages 12 to 35. Eight of these children go to school, and two are independent. Her ambition is to open an outlet for cement and for wheat flour.
