A loan helped to buy 40 sets of traditional fabric.
Malaika Group's story
Petronile is the leader of the Malaika lenders' group. She sells the traditional colorful "pagnes" fabric. She launched her business three years ago with her husband's financial support. Later on she received a Hekima loan to bolster her capital. With this new loan she will buy 40 sets of pagnes. To conclude, Petronile thanks Hekima and its partners for providing financing to micro-entrepreneurs excluded from traditional banking.
