Femmes Vertueuses 1 Group's story

Dina is one of the members of the group Femmes Vertueuses. She is the leader of a group consisting of three other micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Dina owns a used clothing shop and will use her loan to purchase large packs of clothing which include dress pants and shirts for her customers.

Dina has been with HOPE Congo for five loan cycles and faces challenges relating to the quality of merchandise that she is able to find when buying in bulk. Dina has found that giving a warm greeting to her customers provides her with an advantage over her competitors. Her goal is to open a second store location where she can expand and sell even more in the future. Ultimately Dina hopes to be able to cover the school fees for all of her children.

In this group: Dina Angélique, Colette, Josephine, Adèle
