Pierre Angulaire Plus Group's story

“Pierre Angulaire Plus” is a Community Bank made up of 11 micro-entrepreneurs whose chairwoman is Godelive. These members are united for the same goal- to grow their businesses with loans received from Kiva through IMF HOPE RDC. Godelive sells drinks in the area located in the mid-eastern area of Kinshasa. She started her business in 1997. After hard work and good management, she succeeded in making it thrive thanks to the accumulated profits. Her business has also been reinforced by six different loans she received from Kiva through MFI HOPE RDC and has repaid them all properly. She intends to use the next loan to add more crates of drinks. The business gives her a profit of 100 USD every week. Godelive is 55 years old, married and the mother of five children whose ages are between 14 and 31 years old. Two of them attend school. Godelive's ambition is to open a crate drink facility.
