A loan of $4,175 helped a member to purchase 10 charcoal sacks to resell at a profit.


Moïse Plus Group's story

“Moïse Plus” is a Community Bank made up of 23 micro entrepreneurs whose chairman is Emmanuel. These members are united and have the same goal to grow their businesses by loans received from Kiva through HOPE RDC. Emmanuel sells sacks of charcoal in his area located in the north eastern suburban part of Kinshasa. He began his business in 2004. After hard work and good management, he succeeded in making it thrive thanks to the accumulated profits. He is a loyal client of HOPE RDC who has already received two different loans and has repaid them properly. He intends to reinforce the working capital with the next loan by buying ten charcoal sacks to resell at a profit as people do not have power and hot plates in this area. The business gives him a profit of US$30 every week. Emmanuel is 32 years old, married and the father of four children whose ages vary between 1 and 9 years old. Two of them attend school. His ambition is to change his business by opening a general store.

In this group: Emmanuel, Richard, Tungu, Mireille, Solange, Shambuyi, Amble, Stéphane, Marcéline, Charlotte, Donat, Adrienne, Clémentine, Dodet, Thérèse, Mamy, Marie, Yvonne, Marie-Claire, Micheline, Cécile, Annie, Orlette
