A loan of $4,650 helped a member to purchase crates of drinks.

Progression Plus Group's story

“Progression Plus” is a community bank made up of 14 micro-entrepreneurs whose chairwoman is Micheline M.. These members are united for the same goal – to grow their businesses by loans received from Kiva through HOPE DRC.

Micheline sells drinks in her local area located in the south-western area of Kinshasa. She began her business in 1998. After hard work and good management, she succeeded in making it thrive thanks to the accumulated profits. She is a loyal client of MFI HOPE DRC and has already received five different loans, all of which she has repaid properly. She intends to reinforce her capital with her next loan by purchasing more crates of drinks. Her business gives her a profit of USD $60 every week. Micheline is 43 years old, married and the mother of five children whose ages range between 3 and 20. Four of them attend school. Her ambition is to open a crate drinks facility.

In this group: Micheline, Okongo, Mbiya, Thérèse, Isabelle, Justine, Marie-Josée, Madeleine, Buyika, Odette, Raphaél, Jules, Mélanie, Christien
