Ma Foi (2) Group's story

Marianne is a member of the group MA FOI (2), which stands for My Faith, and is the leader of a group consisting of seven other micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. At 63 years old, Marianne is currently on her third loan cycle with HOPE Congo. She has three children and also supports two grandsons, who live with her, through her market stall selling vegetables, fruit and other food. Marianne has been selling in the market for ten years and is well acquainted with the difficulties of sudden changes in price, but manages to draw in clients by continuing to be warm and welcoming. With this loan of 200,000 CFA, Marianne will purchase additional dried fish, corn and other vegetables to sell. Eventually Marianne hopes to be able to build a house on a small piece of land and help send her grandchildren to study in Canada.

In this group: Marianne*, Christine Eveline, Laéticia Laure Perrine, Houakou Isabelle, Clarisse Hortense, Françoise Nicole, Ella Brunelle, Slyvie
