Abstract

AVECs are associations that provide credit and savings options for members to expand their small businesses or manage financial shocks. What are the origins, operations and impact of these associations on Goma’s low-income women-headed households? Citing their success, Papy Mazuri recommends AVECS formalise and expand across the Democratic Republic of Congo.
