but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy three bales of shoes to increase her product offer.

Benediction Group's story

Euphrasie is a customer of Hekima and an older, experienced entrepreneur. She sells shoes in the town's central market. She is leader of the "Benediction" group, married and mother to seven children, all of whom attend school. She has been carrying out her business since the year 2000, and began with financial support of $100 from her husband. Later on, she joined Hekima's loan program to boost her capital. Her husband is a teacher in a public school.

With this new loan she is going to buy three bales of shoes to increase her product offer. She would like to advance her business and save some money to buy a plot of land, as well as educate and feed her family. Finally she thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they give to entrepreneurs who cannot access bank funding. Thanks to the loans she gets from Hekima, she is able to take care of her family.
