Bethleem 2 (1) Group's story

Carlène is a member of the group BETHLEEM 2 (1) and has been running a small imported foods business out of her home the last four years. As a mother of two small children, Carlène would like to continue to grow her business.

As the leader of a subgroup of nine other micro-entrepreneurs in Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo, Carlène would like to take out a small loan of 350,000 to invest in her business. With this money, Carlène would be able to reinforce her stock of fruit, oil, sugar and other non-perishable goods, as well as branch out to selling dried fish.

Since starting with HOPE Congo in 2012, Carlène is now on her seventh loan cycle. Carlène dreams of being able to open her own clothing store in future after gradually building up her savings.
