Persévérance Plus Group's story

Rose is the chairwoman of the community bank named “Persévérance Plus” comprised of 15 members firmly united to receive loans from the microfinance institution HOPE RDC in order to develop their businesses. She is 35 years old and is married with no children.

Rose’s main business is selling honey and yogurt. She goes door-to-door selling her products east of Kinshasa. Since 2007, Rose has been in the micro-business world and has been working hard with good management skills to realize her dream of one day opening a small honey and yogurt processing and storage plant. She would also like to achieve financial independence through her business which currently provides 40 USD each week. Rose works to the best of her abilities and uses her contacts so that she might achieve her goals. Rose is a trustworthy client of the MFI HOPE RDC and has received and repaid six previous loans.

Rose is requesting a loan to increase her stock of honey and yogurt to re-sell at a profit.
