Mabondeli Plus Group's story

Annie is the chairwoman of a community bank named “Mabondeli Plus” which means prayer in English. The group is composed of 18 micro-entrepreneurs united to receive loans from Kiva through IMF HOPE RDC with the goal of developing their individual businesses.

Annie is 43 years old and married with three children between the ages of 12 and 18. All of her children go to school. Annie started her business in 1988 selling beans and rice and today she operates a restaurant located in the heart of Kinshasa. Her restaurant has prospered thanks to Hope’s loans and Annie is able to increase her working capital with her daily profit of about 30 USD.

Annie is happy to be part of one of MFI Hope’s groups. She joined the group in 2010 and her business has been strengthened through the seven loans she has received and repaid from MFI Hope DRC. In the future, Annie’s dream is to diversify her business by opening a beverage facility.

In this group: Annie, Ivette, Siska, Willy, Faustine, Bernadette, Thithi, Papy, Peter, Niclette, Siska, Kumbi, Nadine, Jean Marie, Aimée, M. Josée, Séverine, Trésor
