Don Precieux (2) Group's story

Patrick is a member of the community bank group Don Precieux (2) in Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo. Helping to lead a group of eight other micro-entrepreneurs, Patrick sells onions, garlic, and other spices in bulk. With his second loan with HOPE Congo, Patrick will buy large sacks of onion and garlic, which he will then resell in smaller quantities. In order to keep the best clients, Patrick understands that he must select the highest quality products for his customers and also offer discounts when possible. Additionally, Patrick has recently added bananas to his offering of products. In the future, Patrick would love to expand further up the value chain to import his goods directly or perhaps one day start his own farm where he could grow his own produce with Congo’s fertile soil.
