Peter runs a telephone booth that sells prepaid cards, and he is a money changer in his area located east of Kinshasa. He began his business in 1993. With hard work and determination, his business has prospered. Peter is now well known and liked in this area. He has already received six MFI HOPE DRC loans and fully repaid them.
