A loan helped a member sell shoes.


Famille Bitwenge Group's story

Noella began selling shoes in 2007. For health reasons, she stopped but she started again in 2016 with her husband’s financial support.

This business is profitable despite a lack of funds. If Noella had sufficient capital, she could satisfy her customers’ preferences and add to it the sale of food products.

Noella handles this activity whereas her husband is a government employee.

This loan is special because:

It supports women who escaped violence in other parts of DRC.
