Gédéon Plus Group's story

Nzeki M. is the leader of the community bank named “Gédéon Plus” which is composed of thirty-one micro-entrepreneurs united in solidarity. They will receive loans from Kiva through HOPE DRC with the goal of developing their businesses.

Nzeki M., 44, is single and runs a restaurant. With her first loan, she expanded her business by adding vegetables and palm oil, items in high demand where she works in eastern Kinshasa. She has been a faithful HOPE DRC client since then and her business has prospered. She makes the equivalent of $10 per day in profit.

Nzeki M. is planning with this loan to increase the stock of her restaurant by purchasing twenty kilograms of salted fish. She is working very hard and would like to continue receiving HOPE DRC loans in order to achieve her dream of modernizing her restaurant by using electrical appliances such as hot plates instead of charcoal. She also plans to start a catering service.
