Monzoto Plus Group's story

Monzoto Plus is a group of 7 owners of small businesses, chaired by Baruani. Its members are jointly liable for loans granted by Kiva to grow their businesses.

Baruani, single, aged 40, operates a general store while taking care of one younger brother. He began his business in 1998. Baruani has used four Hope loans (a DRCongo Microfinance Program) to finance the expanding of his inventory. Due to the high demand in his community, he intends with the next loan to buy more goods for resale in order to meet client demands and generate additional profit. This will help him to achieve his plans to grow the business. His business brings in a profit of US$110 per week. Baruani’s ambition is to expand his store. He is engaged.

In this group: Baruani, Mukuna, Guylaine, Eyenga, Chantal, Henriette, Octace
