Rémède Plus Group's story

Rémède Plus is a Community Bank made up of 20 micro-entrepreneurs whose chairman is Riddy. These members are united for the same goal: to grow their businesses by loans received from Kiva through IMF HOPE RDC.

Riddy operates a drugstore in a northern suburban area of Kinshasa. He is 30 years old, the father of a son who is 3 years old. He began his business in 2003. With hard work and good management and by providing good customer service, Riddy’s business has prospered and has permanent customers to keep it up and it generates $40 in profit per week.

Riddy is planning with the new loan to expand his business by buying more medicines needed by his customers. His ambition is to open another drugstore.
