A loan of $5,000 helped a member to purchase some bags of bread flour in order to make loaves of bread to resell at a profit.

Oracle Plus Group's story

Nekua is the group’s leader. His group is named “Oracle Plus”, and it is composed of 29 micro entrepreneurs. They are united by the same goal: to grow their businesses by loans received from Kiva through IMF HOPE RDC.

Nekua runs a pastry. Besides that, he also sells beverages in his area located east of the capital city of Kinshasa. Nekua has been in business since 1997. He started his business by running a restaurant that he changed later into a pastry business because of the profit. Today, Nekua is happy because his business brings in a profit of $20 each day.

Thanks to Hope’s loans, which he received twice and repaid them correctly, he has diversified his business by adding beverages. Nekua plans to use the next loan to increase the inventory of his pastry by purchasing ten bags of bread flour in order to make loaves to resell at a profit. He dreams one day to open a catering service and he wants to be a farmer. He is single and has three children.
