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


A loan helped to pay for 200 lengths of 'pagne' cloth, 50 necklaces with accessories, and the transport costs for her business.


Dorcas Group's story

Ms. JEANNETTE is the president of the solidarity group named “DORCAS II” who sells 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa) at the local central market. She is 42 and a client of the microfinance institution who is the married mother of five children, all still in school. She has been operating her business for the past twelve years with funds from her husband, a government employee, and then from Hekima later.

With this loan, she will pay for 200 lengths of 'pagnes' cloth, 50 necklaces with accessories, and the transport costs in order to bolster her business. Her main concern is to provide food and an education for all her children under good conditions but also to open a big warehouse to serve more people. She thanks Hekima and its valuable partners for supporting women financially.
