White 2 (1) Group's story

Jean is an experienced father. With six children of his own, plus two nephews, Jean has his hands full. In order to support his family, Jean owns and runs a small butcher’s shop and a drink stand in Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo. Jean recently joined a community bank group called WHITE 2 (1) with HOPE Congo. As the leader of a subgroup of 11 other micro-entrepreneurs in Brazzaville, Jean would like to take out a small loan of 250,000 CFA to invest in his businesses.

With this money Jean will be able to purchase additional soda and juices, as well as various meats such as pork, beef and chicken. In the future, Jean hopes to branch out to other businesses such as building homes and selling manioc (a local Congolese food staple made from cassava root). He hopes that through creating a stable income, his family will continue to live well and that he will have something to leave his children.
