Developpement (1) Group's story

Serge is a micro-entrepreneur, from Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, with his own small grocery story and restaurant in his home neighborhood. Serge joined HOPE Congo last year and is a member of the community bank group, DEVELOPPEMENT (1). Serge is the leader of a subgroup of six other micro-entrepreneurs, and he is currently on his third loan cycle with HOPE Congo. He would like to take out a small loan of 350,000 XAF in order to purchase additional merchandise such as drinks, sausages and canned food items.

Serge dreams of being able to have enough savings to diversify his businesses by running a chicken farm with several business partners. As the father of two, Serge hopes to support his young son’s dreams by sending him to a school specializing in football (soccer). Eventually, Serge would even like to travel to the Netherlands to learn about the poultry business.
