La Fidelite 3 (2) Group's story

A single woman in her 20s, May is bursting with plans for the future. At present, May lives and works in Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo, and is a member of the community bank group LA FIDELITÉ 3 (2). May is the group’s treasurer and leads a sub-group of seven other micro-entrepreneurs at HOPE Congo. Since she was 16, May has been working hard at her own market stand selling fruits and vegetables such as bananas, plantains, mangos, pineapples and peanuts. Getting up before 5 am every morning to travel to a distant market where the freshest fruits are found, May brings her produce to Brazzaville to sell. May calls out to potential clients, drawing them in with samples of her fruit. Now on her second loan cycle with HOPE Congo, May would like to take out a loan of 250,000 CFA to purchase additional fruits and vegetables to sell. With the increased profits from this business, May hopes to be able to travel to China to begin purchasing items there to sell back in Congo. One day, May hopes to have her own clothing shop, and dreams of eventually working in the civil service. The first step down this road is growing her current business with a new loan.
