Banungi Plus Group's story

Richard is the leader of the community bank named “Banungi Plus,” which is composed of 12 micro-entrepreneurs united in solidarity to obtain loans from Kiva through HOPE DRC with the goal of developing their businesses.
Richard runs a general store in the mid-eastern area of Kinshasa. Besides that, he also sells beverages. He has been in business since 1995. Currently, through his businesses, Richard makes about $20 per day. He plans to use his next loan to purchase a freezer in order to sell cool drinks and increase his income. Richard is a trustworthy client of HOPE DRC, having received and properly repaid nine loans. He dreams someday of building a large business facility to keep goods.
Richard is 39 years old, married and the father of three children aged between 6 and 11. Two of them attend school. Richard enjoys selling because it gives him the opportunity to make contact with many different people, and once they become permanent customers he is able to offer them quality products at a better price.
