Efficacité Plus Group's story

Alain is a leader of the community bank named “Efficacité Plus,” which is composed of 15 microentrepreneurs united in solidarity to obtain loans from Kiva through the MFI HOPE DRC with the goal of developing their businesses.

Alain, 30 years old, single and taking care of his younger brother, is a bread provider in his area located in the northern and most populated area of Kinshasa. In business since 2001, he makes about $35 per week through his sales. His plans are to use the next loan to diversify his business by adding a telephone booth in order to increase his income. He is a trustworthy client of the MFI Hope DRC, having received and fully repaid seven loans. He dreams of one day opening a bread facility to provide his area with loaves of bread.
