Botosi Plus Group's story

Botosi Plus is a Community Bank made up of 29 members whose chairwoman is Rose M.. These members are united for the same goal- to grow their businesses by loans received from Kiva through MFI HOPE DRC. Rose sells mushrooms, peanuts and caterpillars. She began her business in 1980. After hard work and good management, she succeeded in making her business thrive thanks to her accumulated profits and different loans she received from HOPE DRC. Rose is a trustworthy client of the MFI HOPE DRC, having obtained and correctly repaid 9 loans. She will increase her stock of her goods with her next loan by buying mushrooms, peanuts and caterpillars and reselling them at profit. Her business brings in 50 USD of profit each week. Her dream is to someday open a general store in her environment. Rose is 51 years old, widowed, and the mother of 6 children, whose ages vary between 12 and 30 years old. Four of them attend school.
