Bethleem Plus Group's story

Caleb is the chairman of a Community bank named “Bethleem Plus”, composed of 10 microentrepreneurs united to receive loans from Kiva through IMF HOPE RDC with the goal of developing their businesses.

Caleb earns a living by selling apples, a business he started in 2001 with US$30 as his starting capital. He also manages a small motorcycle transport business. Caleb is seeking a loan to reinforce his working capital through an increase in his business inventory. A 33-year-old married father of a two-year-old son, Caleb is happy that he is going to be able to increase his inventory with the loan. Currently, through his sales, Caleb makes about $270 per week.

A trustworthy client of the MFI Hope DRC, having seven times received and properly repaid loans, his dream is to someday open a transportation company in Kinshasa.
