Gloria Group's story

Mrs. HERMINE is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution. She is a dynamic woman and long-time, experienced businesswoman with innovative initiatives who sells a juice beverage. She runs a craft-style activity where she processes the maize, wheat and sorghum into the juice that she sells. She avails herself of local opportunities to obtain her ingredients.

Hermine is the leader of the GLORIA group. She is a 52-year-old married woman with 7 children and many grandsons who go to school. She has been doing this work since 1998 and initially started her activity with funds obtained from her husband, then later turned to Hekima.

She will use this new loan to buy 3 sacks of maize, 1 sack of sorghum and 1 sack of wheat to bolster her production and offer her clients high-grade, delicious juices.

She wants to help her business progress, modernize her activity and ensure that her children are fed and get an education.

Lastly, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of entrepreneurs who cannot use the traditional banking system. The loans obtained through Hekima have helped her to provide for her children.
