Mfuti is 38 years old, married and a father of six children between the ages of 3 and 13. Four of the children go to school. He sells pairs of shoes. He has been in business since 1999 and has already received six loans from Hope that he repaid correctly.

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.
