Dieu Aide Nous (1) Group's story

Bernadette is a member of the group DIEU AIDE NOUS (1) and is the leader of a group consisting of eight other micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. A single mother of three children, Bernadette sells foufou, a local dish, and hot food that she grills on the spot. Now on her third loan cycle with HOPE Congo, Bernadette plans on using her loan to buy more bags of foufou and chicken thighs to prepare and sell. In the future she hopes to start her own butcher’s shop and an embroidery business as well. Bernadette dreams of being able to save up enough money to take her family on a vacation and to build her own house.
