Acceuil Group's story

Ngongo Asinama is 36 years old and the mother of six children who attend school. She is also a fish seller, an experienced entrepreneur, a client of the Hekima micro-finance institution, and the leader of the "ACCEUIL" group. She works as an itinerant vendor and walks along the streets of her city to sell her merchandise. She started her business around the year 2000 with her own capital and the support of her husband. At the moment her husband is unemployed. In early 2014, she joined the loan program offered by Hekima in order to boost her capital.

She will use this new loan to buy eight baskets of fish in order to increase her activity and to provide her customers with good-quality high-protein foods. Her goal is to feed her children, send them to school, and to grow her business. She thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to entrepreneurs who are excluded from the traditional banking system. The loans she takes from Hekima allow her to take care of her children.
