White 2 (2) Group's story

Rubin runs a small butcher’s shop and video game room in Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo. Working to support his three children, Rubin has been running his business activities for the past two years, battling the frequent power outages of Brazzaville. In order to improve his businesses and increase his means of income, Rubin joined HOPE Congo in the community bank group White 2 (2). Rubin is the leader of a small group of 11 other micro-entrepreneurs in Brazzaville, and would like to take out his first small loan of 250,000 XAF (Central African CFA francs), the local currency. With this loan, Rubin will be able to purchase additional chicken, beef, and other meats for his butcher’s shop and add a small drinks area to his video game room. He gains customers by offering a warm and welcoming atmosphere and building friendships with his neighbors. In the future, Rubin would like to grow his business to include a walk-in freezer so that he can increase his capacity to keep meat fresh. Through the proceeds from his businesses, Rubin hope to be able to support his children and put all of them through school.
