Méthodiste Plus Group's story

Tshabidi is 52 years old and married. She has nine children between 9 and 34 years old. Five of them go to school.

Tshabidi is a leader of the community bank named “Méthodiste Plus,” which is composed of 17 microentrepreneurs united in solidarity to receive loans from Kiva through the MFI HOPE DRC with the goal of developing their businesses.

Tshabidi runs a restaurant. She has a solid experience in that field. With her first loan from Hope, she has been in the business world since 1990. Her business makes about $50 per week in profit.

She has been a faithful Hope’s client, having twice obtained and correctly repaid loans. Since then her business has prospered.

She plans with the coming loan to increase the stock of her restaurant by purchasing fish and chickens that her clients need. She is working very hard and would like to continue receiving Hope loans to achieve her dreams of someday opening a supermarket in her environment.
