La Confiance (2) Group's story

Cesar is one of the members of the group La Confiance (2). He is the leader of the group, which consists of eight micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Cesar is married with three children, ranging in age from 3 to 16 years old. This is Cesar's very first loan cycle with HOPE Congo and he is going to use his loan to purchase a used vehicle that he will disassemble for used parts to resell to his customers. One of the challenges that Cesar faces since he started his business in 2004 is that often his customers are looking for unique items to purchase from his store and it is difficult to find the necessary stock when customers ask for parts. The purchase of the vehicle will allow him to offer more parts, especially unique parts, to his clients. In the future, Cesar hopes to continue to grow his activities and diversify into activities other than spare vehicle parts. Additionally, the increased income that he hopes to earn from his business will be put towards constructing a new home for him and his family.

In this group: Stève Pichastre, Seraphine, Miakakela, Stetieiene Avertie, Henriette, Edith, Cesar, Kevin
