Terre Promise Plus Group's story

Maurice I. Mpango, 63, is the president of the Community Bank “Terre Promise Plus”, which means Promised Land in English. It is composed of 24 members united in solidarity to receive loans from Kiva through the MFI HOPE RDC with the goal of developing their businesses.

Maurice started his business in 1998 selling beauty cream and miscellaneous products from his location in the north-eastern city of Kinshasa. He is a loyal client of MFI HOPE RDC and has already received two loans which he repaid properly. As demand is high in his community, he intends to use the next loan to increase his stock of goods and resell them with the aim of increasing his profits. Each week, his business brings in a profit of $30. His ambition is to become a wholesaler.

Maurice is married and the father of six children, aged between 14 and 37. Four of his children go to school.

In this group: Maurice, Bernard, Augustin, Emilie, Clémentine, Abel, Bernadette, Marie, Marc, Véronique, Guy-Réné, Rachel, Micheline, Ngoy, Elalie, Léontine, Jean, Nestorine, Ngalula, Salomon, Mbaya, Bernadette, Mamie, Mpemba
