Rapha (2) Group's story

Simon is one of the members of the group Rapha (2). The group consists of ten micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Simon is married with four children, whose ages range from 5 to 13 years old. Simon is very excited to be receiving his sixth loan from HOPE Congo after having successfully paid off his previous loans. He has had his business for around eleven years. His business is a small convenience store, selling many different items including cooking oil, sugar, peanuts, etc. 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 offer his products at a cheaper price than his competitors, increasing his sales. Simon hopes to continue to grow and diversify his store in the future. With future profits, he dreams of one day opening up a small boutique shop and maybe even a restaurant. He thanks you all for your support!!!

In this group: Simon, Stanley, Roselyne, Tania, Lima, Jacqueline, Cora, Aimée, Gerda, Angelique
