La Confiance (1) Group's story

Patrick is one of the members of the group La Confiance (1). He is the leader of a group consisting of eight micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Patrick is married with a total of eight children! They range in age from 4 to 18 years old. This is Patrick's very first loan cycle with HOPE Congo and he is looking forward to expanding his shop and business, which he has been running since 2003. Patrick says his biggest challenge so far is the increasing prices that he must pay for the inventory for his store and states that this loan will help to reinforce the total capital of his business. Patrick also loves to talk about Jesus with other people in his community and his loan group.

In the future, Patrick hopes to continue to grow his activities so that he can increase his current shop and ultimately to become a successful businessman in Brazzaville. He would love for his future business to provide him with the opportunity to travel abroad to other countries.

In this group: Garcia Lydwine, Cedric, Augustine Aimelie, Flore Sylvie, Gery Chrisostome, Sidonie, Anifride, Patrick Torendel
