A loan of $4,100 helped a member to increase the stock of his business by purchasing some foam mattresses to resell at a profit.

Eternel Plus Group's story

Mudilawe joined one of Hope’s groups (a DRCongo Microfinance program) named “Eternel Plus” in 2009. He is the chairman of that group, which consists of nine members. Thanks to Hope’s loans, the group members’ businesses have prospered.

Mudilawe is 42 years old, married, and has five children between the ages of 1 and 15. He has been active in his business since 1990. He sells foam mattresses to the east of Kinshasa. Mudilawe is dedicated to his business, which generates a profit of US $180 per week. His business is the only source of income he has to support his family.

Mudilawe has already received and successfully repaid nine loans. He is planning to use the coming loan to purchase some foam mattresses of good quality that are needed by his clients in order to generate more profit. His dream is to open a foam mattress shop in his environment.
