A loan of $5,775 helped a member to purchase additional bags of coal and kindling.


Louange (2) Group's story

François is a single father of seven children in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo. He runs his own business selling coal and kindling. Soon after he started his business, François learned about HOPE Congo and joined the community bank group, LOUANGE (2). François is the leader of a sub-group of 11 other micro-entrepreneurs in Brazzaville, and he would like to take out his second loan with HOPE Congo. With 250,000 XAF, François will be able to purchase additional bags of coal and kindling in bulk to sell in small bundles.

While it can be difficult to transport his goods from the forest to the market to sell, François keeps ahead of the competition by working hard to have a constant supply of stock. François has big dreams for the future, and hopes to one day become a supplier of wood and coal in bulk. He dreams of continuing to support his family in the future so that they can prosper.

In this group: François, Joanna, Natacha, Yannick , Alice , Adelaïde, Olga, Berméla , Nadège, Pauline, Albertine, Albreche
