Obeissance (1) Group's story

Christine is one of the members of the group Obeissance (1). She is the leader of a group consisting of ten other micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Christine owns a stall in the market where she sells salted fish, foufou, and other various items to her clients. Christine has been with HOPE Congo for two loan cycles and faces challenges relating to the frequent fluctuation in prices of the merchandise that she must buy. Christine has found that her business-savvy and the stock of her products allows her to be able to grow her business. Her goal is to move from the open market into her own small boutique and shop to be able to provide better service to her customers. With her increased revenue, she hopes to be able to send her children to a better school and to build a house for her and her family.
