Torrent De Kerith Plus Group's story

Beatrice is the chairwoman of the Community Bank named “Torrent de Kerith Plus”. It is composed of 21 members united in solidarity to receive Kiva loans with the goal of developing their businesses. Beatrice is a 56-year-old widow. She is the mother of six children aged between 23 and 38 years old; three of them go to school. She has been active in her business since 2005. She sells corn seeds and salted fish in the western area of Kinshasa. She has already taken nine loans from the MFI HOPE DRC for business expansion and fully repaid them. Thanks to Hope’s loans, her business has prospered and it generates a profit of about USD $60 per week. With this loan Beatrice intends to increase the inventory of her business by buying some sacks of corn seeds to resell at profit and increase her income. Her ambition is to diversify her business and become a provider in her environment. She works hard in order to achieve her dream.
