A loan of $3,625 helped a member to buy phone cards and credit from cell phone companies to sell.

Dieu Pourvoira 1 Group's story

Olivia, age 32, is single with no children. She represents the Dieu Pourvoira 1 group. Olivia has a small business where she sells phone cards and phone credit. She has been operating this business for one year. She will use the loan to buy more phone cards and credit from cell phone companies. In Congo, the majority of cell phones are not on contract. Instead, people buy minutes as they need them. The cell phone companies sell their cards and credit to individuals who then sell them to the public. Olivia's business strategy is to sell individual items as well as to sell credit in bulk. Her stand is located on a busy avenue on which many people travel.

This is Olivia's first loan from HOPE Congo. HOPE Congo and Olivia's group members are confident that she will pay the loan back. In the future, she hopes to be a large distributor of phone cards who sells to smaller businesses.

In this group: Olivia Rosine, Sylvie Florine, Martine, Annie, Mireille, Hortense, Angele, Gathe
