Congo beer factory – level 1

13-01-2023 07:00

Congo is a poor country. Most people live on less than 2 dollars a day.

A French company builds a beer factory in Beni. The factory is very important for local people. Many of them work there. Between 2013 and 2021, the production of beer grows. Last year, the company builds a second filling line.

There are problems with rebel groups. The area is dangerous. Workers cannot deliver beer to some places. Also, some roads are very bad. It takes a long time to get beer to some places.

Difficult words: production (when you make things), filling line (a part of a factory where a machine fills bottles), rebel group (people who fight against the government).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
