Avenir Plus Group's story

Jennifer B. is the chairwoman of this community bank named “Avenir Plus”, which is composed of sixteen micro-entrepreneurs. They are jointly united to receive loans from Kiva through HOPE DRC with the goal of developing their businesses.

Jennifer is 43 years old, married and has five children between the ages of 7 and 26 and all of them go to school.

Jennifer started her business in 2007 with capital of $50 selling doughnuts. Today, she operates a restaurant which has prospered thanks to HOPE DRC’s loans and her husband’s management support. With the profit of about $10 earned per day, she has increased her working capital. Her restaurant is located in the western area of Kinshasa.

Currently, Jennifer is happy to be part of one of HOPE DRC’s groups. She joined the group in August 2009 and her business has been reinforced through the three loans she received from HOPE DRC which she repaid properly. Her dream is to open a catering service.

In this group: Jennifer, Mado, Chantal, Robert, Germaine, Jacqueline, Christine, Marie-Angel, Justine, Daniel, Benz, Claire, Marie, Judith, Ngituka, Mamie
