Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Adinofex Plus Group's story

Adinofex Plus is a group of 16 owners of small businesses chaired by Yves. Its members are jointly liable for loans granted by Kiva to grow their businesses.

Yves, married and aged 41, operates a general store in an area located mid-west of the capital city of Kinshasa. He has been in business since 2001. He has acquired solid experience in this area. Yves has already used six Hope loans (a DRCongo Microfinance Program) to finance the expanding of his inventory and he paid them back correctly.

Due to the high demand in his community, he intends with the next loan to buy more goods for resale in order to meet clients' demand and generate additional profit. This will help him to achieve his plans to grow the business. It brings in a profit of US$122 per week. Yves’s ambition is to expand his store further. He is engaged. He is the father of three children whose ages are between 10 and 14 years old. Two of them go to school.

In this group: Yves, Bosobi, Kinguta, Esther, Marthe, Angélique, Françoise, Nsimba, Sophie, Ezechiel, Pierre, Vicky, Raïsa, Ngwizani, Edo, Kambilo
