A loan of $5,925 helped a member to buy more fish to sell.


Main De Dieu (2) Group's story

Sylvestre is a young entrepreneur from Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo, who makes and sells smoked fish out of his home. At home he supports his wife and 2-year-old child in addition to two little brothers. In order to help increase his business activity, Sylvestre joined HOPE Congo earlier this year, becoming a member of the community bank group MAIN DE DIEU (2).

Sylvestre leads a sub-group of ten other micro-entrepreneurs within MAIN DE DIEU (2) and is currently on his second loan cycle with HOPE Congo. Now Sylvestre would like to take out a small loan of 300,000 XAF (Central African CFA francs) in order to buy more fish. In the future, he hopes to expand his business and one day be able to save enough money to build his family their own home.

In this group: Sylvestre, Dolly, Marlène, Michelle, Hilaire, Georges, Galessan, Assitou, Ludmilla, Rebecca, Andress
