Divinite (1) Group's story

Flora is the mother of two young children in Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo. For over eight years, she has been supporting her family by hand-knitting and selling children’s clothing. In 2013, Flora learned about HOPE Congo and joined the community bank group Divinite (1). Leading a sub-group of 12 other micro-entrepreneurs in Brazzaville, Flora is currently on her fourth loan cycle. In order to expand her business, she would like to take out a loan of 300,000 CFA to purchase additional yarn in various colors.

In the future Flora dreams that she will be able to open her own small studio to work and sell in, bringing in enough money that she will be able put her children through good schools. She hopes that one day her children will also be able to learn her craft of making children’s clothing.
