Democratic Republic of the Congo Success Stories
Democratic Republic of Congo. John is the owner of a company in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He works in the commercial industry selling vehicles, clothing, and providing event services. He is a Success Ambassador that wants to encourage everyone to take the MBS course.
Through the MBS course he found a way to improve his business that has brought him great success. His company did not keep Income and Expense Logs, which is used to keep track of money earned and spent. Whenever he had a family emergency, for example, he would take money from his company since he didn’t have a salary. Because of this, he never saw much improvement with his business. It wasn’t until he took the MBS course that he realized the importance of keeping track of his income and expenses and of separating his money from the company’s money. John saw a complete change in his business since implementing this principle, and the turnover increased remarkably in just one month.
In his words, “I want to encourage all new MBS students and those who are interested in taking the course to not hesitate because it really is the path that leads to success, autonomy, and stability. The MBS course is a great program because it helps everyone even if we have nothing; It reminds us that we have a talent to cultivate and it helps us become businessmen.”
Democratic Republic of the Congo. A group in the Congo has taken the 6P’s of the MBS program and created a business growing and selling peppers in their local market! As a reminder, the 6P’s are:
PLAN, PRODUCT, PROCESS, PRICE, PROMOTION, and PAPERWORK.
We love seeing the application of these principles around the world, moving people from poverty to prosperity.More
Democratic Republic of the Congo. Success Ambassadors in the Congo have been working hard and the fruits have finally been harvested! Here was a graduation of a group sponsored by the Canadian University of the Congo. There are two more groups preparing to graduate in the coming months and a new “Center for Autonomy and MBS Services,” which they created as part of the course in order to help spread the program to the community.
