Blessing Shop Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy some construction supplies (50 sacks of cement and 50 pipes).

Blessing Shop Group's story

Freddy is 47 years old, married, and the father of eight children. His six oldest children go to school, the other two are still too young. He works in retail and owns a hardware shop along his town's main street. He is a member of the "Blessing Shop" loan group and a client of the micro-finance institution Hekima.

Eager to strengthen his activity, Freddy will use his loan to buy some construction supplies (50 sacks of cement, 50 pipes etc.). He started his business, ten years ago, with a capital accumulated from his salary. His goal is to feed his children and send them to school. He thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to entrepreneurs who are excluded from the traditional banking system.
