La Fidelite 3 (1) Group's story

Fannie is a member of the community bank group LA FIDELITÉ 3 (1) in Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo. For the last several years, Fannie has supported herself and her daughter by selling diverse items in one of Brazzaville’s largest markets. Selling manioc (cassava), various food items and whatever else she can find, Fannie has been able to grow her activities by taking out small loans with HOPE Congo as a part of LA FIDELITÉ 3 (1).

Within LA FIDELITÉ 3 (1), Fannie helps lead a sub-group of seven other micro-entrepreneurs. Now on her fifth loan cycle, Fannie wants to branch out and begin to sell fish and drinks as well. In order to do so, Fannie would like to take out a loan of 300,000 CFA to travel to Pointe Noire, the Republic of Congo’s economic capital on the coast. There, she will be able to buy fresh fish and drinks in bulk to sell back in Brazzaville.

Through expanding her business activities, Fannie hopes that one day, she will be able to buy a piece of land to build her own home.

In this group: Fannie, Isabelle, Emma , Simone, Gervais, Armel, Jeanne, Charline
