White 2 (1) Group's story

Audrey is one of the members of the group White 2 (1). The group consists of nine female micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Audrey is married with 4 children whose ages range from 15 to 19 years old. Audrey is very excited to be receiving her third loan from HOPE Congo after having successfully paid off her previous loans. She has had her business for around two years. Her business consists of selling foufou (local food), miscellaneous drinks, and fuel. She says her biggest challenge so far in her business is creating customer loyalty. With this next loan she will be able to buy more of each of these items to further grow her inventory. By buying in bulk, she will be able to reduce her prices, giving her a competitive advantage in her bustling stall. Audrey has big dreams for the future of her family. She hopes that one day she will be able to pay for her children to travel abroad to pursue their university studies. She thanks you all for your support!!!
