Berée Plus Group's story

Guislain B. is president of the Village Bank " Berée Plus " made up of 27 micro-entrepreneurs who have together decided to request a loan from the lenders of the world via Kiva. Guislain runs his own funeral home and also has a small water treatment plant in the northern part of Kinshasa. He has been a faithful client of MFI HOPE DRC since 2008. He has received 5 loans through MFI HOPE DRC and has repaid them all in full. This next loan will allow him to purchase two tents to rent out in order to increase his profits. This activity will earn him $100 a week. He hopes in the future to buy a transportation bus. Guislain is single and 29 years old.
