Zawadi Group's story

Ms. LEONTINE is the leader of the community group called ZAWADI and a client of the microfinance institution Hekima. She is 47 and the mother of nine children, of whom 3 are in school. Her main work involves selling used shoes. She began with startup funding from her husband eighteen years ago, and then Hekima followed. Ambitious in her work, she also devotes herself to sewing clothing.

With this loan, she is going to purchase 2 sacks of used shoes and a sewing machine to bolster her business. Her main concerns in the days to come are to see her three children in higher education and to renovate her house. She thanks Hekima very much for always supporting deprived persons.
