Paix Plus Group's story

Evelyne is the leader of the community bank named Paix Plus, which means "peace" in English. The group is made up of 10 members firmly united to receive loans from Kiva through the MFI (microfinance institution) HOPE RDC in order to develop their businesses.

Evelyne’s main business is selling loaves of bread in her area west of Kinshasa. Since 2004, she has acquired solid experience in this area and works hard with good management skills in order to achieve her dream of one day opening a large bread facility. She would also like to achieve financial independence through her business that earns her $50 per week. She works to the best of her abilities and uses her contacts so that she might achieve her goals.

Evelyne is a trustworthy client of HOPE RDC, having seven times obtained and correctly repaid loans.

She will increase her stock of products with her next loan by buying 40 trays of loaves of bread and reselling them at a profit. Evelyne is 40 years old, married and has five children whose ages vary between 4 and 11 years old. Four of the children go to school.
