EXPANDING ACCESS TO FINANCIAL SERVICES IN THE DRC

In rural areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo, where access to credit is difficult, our loans make a significant improvement to the lives of many. When our clients use their loans to build their businesses, the effects are felt throughout the community.  

On March 31st, 2016 Opportunity International had entered into a share purchase agreement to sell a majority stake of its microfinance institution in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo to VisionFund International, World Vision’s microfinance arm. On August 29th, 2016 the Central Bank of Congo had approved the sale of 80% of shares from Opportunity International to VisionFund International and the change of name from Opportunity International DRC to VisionFund DRC.

VisionFund DRC operates through three branches and one community branch, all located in Kinshasa districts, serving over 2,861 families.
