Benediction Baco Group's story

Marceline, who is 43 years old and married, is the chairwoman of the community bank named “Bénédiction”, which consists of nine members united in solidarity to receive loans from Kiva through IMF HOPE RDC. Their common goal is to develop their businesses.

Marceline started her business in 2005. She has been running a restaurant located northwest of the city of Lubumbashi. With hard work and determination, she has succeeded in making it thrive thanks to good management and accumulated profits. She is a loyal client of IMF HOPE RDC and has already received eight different loans and has repaid them properly.

Marceline intends to use the next loan to buy fish, meat, etc. for her restaurant with the aim of increasing profits. Each week, her business brings in a profit of about $65. Her ambition for the future is to open a big restaurant in her environment.
