Abigaël Plus Group's story

Bernadette M. is the director of the group “Abigaël Plus” made up of thirty-nine members firmly united to receive loans from the MFI (micro-finance institution) HOPE RDC in order to develop their businesses.

Bernadette’s main business is selling clothes and pairs of shoes in a market to the west of Kinshasa. Since 1990 she has acquired solid experience in her area and works hard with good management skills in order to realize her dream of one day opening a clothes shop.

Bernadette would also like to achieve financial independence through her business that earns her $160 per month. She works to the best of her abilities and uses her contacts so that she might achieve her goals.

Bernadette is a trustworthy client of the MFI HOPE RDC, having six times obtained and correctly repaid loans. She will increase her stock of products with her next loan by buying clothes and pairs of shoes and reselling them at a profit.

45 years old, Bernadette is married and has five children whose ages vary between 5 and 15 years old. All of them go to school.
