Mbemba Mulongo’s business helps to support her husband and nine children, ages 4-28. She has now taken 16 loans to grow her orange sales business in Kinshasa, DRC, and she hopes to one day diversify her inventory to continue expanding her business. She says that many in her community respect her for the initiative and courage she displayed in taking loans and expanding her business to support her family. In addition to providing for her own family, she has been able to contribute to offerings taken at her church. “I pray for the durability of HOPE because [HOPE’s services are a] true support for the poor,” she says.
