One Changed Life: Guy’s Story

Despite holding a master’s degree in economics, Guy Roland Matongo was unable to find work in Brazzaville, Congo, to provide for the seven individuals in his household. His mother began a women’s clothing business several years ago, and when she became too ill to continue working, Guy took the reins of the business. With a loan from HOPE Congo, he was able to travel to Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, to purchase a wider variety of clothing in varied sizes and styles. Since joining his community bank, Guy says that he has stopped drinking and has instead focused his energies on his business. He says he feels encouraged and now has hope for the future. As his current business continues to grow, he hopes to earn enough to open a hair salon for men.



As Christ’s followers responding to His great love, HOPE International seeks physical, social, spiritual, and personal restoration in places of brokenness. Through Christ-centered economic development, we empower men and women to strengthen their families, build their businesses, and unleash their dreams.
