She has been active in her business since 2006 when she began running a drugstore. She joined one of Hope’s groups (a Democratic Republic of the Congo Microfinance Program) in 2009, and has received six loans since.

With this loan, Ngoyi intends to increase the inventory of her business by buying some sacks of corn flour and semolina to meet her customers' needs and increase her income. Her ambition is to become a corn flour and semolina provider in her community. She works hard in order to achieve her dream.
