One Changed Life: Ntumba’s Story

Ntumba Marie

Before Ntumba Marie received her first HOPE loan, she did not have a reliable income.  Her husband processed and sold cornmeal at market, but his mill consistently broke down.  Lacking the savings to repair it, their income was often halted, and Ntumba and her husband were unable to afford their diabetes medication.  With her first loan, Ntumba Marie began selling fruit at the marketplace, making enough money to repair the mill.  As her business grew with subsequent loans, she was able to buy diabetes medication and more nutritious food for their small family.  They began paying for their grandson’s education and have even been able to expand their home. Their physical health has improved, and so have their diets; Ntumba says she now eats her favorite food, chicken, on a regular basis.



As Christ’s followers responding to His great love, HOPE International seeks physical, social, spiritual, and personal restoration in places of brokenness. Through Christ-centered economic development, we empower men and women to strengthen their families, build their businesses, and unleash their dreams.
