Que Dieu Nous Benisse Group's story

Basile is one of the members of the group Que Dieu Nous Benisse (2). The group consists of 11 microentrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Basile is married with nine children whose ages range from 22 to 36 years old. Basile is very excited to be receiving his second loan from HOPE Congo after having successfully paid off his previous loan. He has had his business for around five years. His business is a general store, selling many different items including drinks, flour, sugar, and other food items. He says his biggest challenge so far is the inconsistency of his suppliers. Often, when he goes to restock his store, the supplier does not have any inventory available for sale. With this next loan, he will be able to buy more of each of these items to further grow his inventory. By buying in bulk, he will be able to continue to work through those periods when his supplier is out of inventory. Basile hopes to continue to grow and diversify his store in the future. With future profits, he dreams of one day building his own home. He also wants to teach his children the business so they can one day have a business of their own. He thanks you all for your support!!!
