A loan helped to stock up on used clothing wholesale so as to bolster her business.

Uamsho Group's story

Ms. Julienne is a customer of the IMF Hekima and the chair of the Uamsho banque villageoise. She is married, 54 years old and has four children, all of whom study. Her husband is an entrepreneur.

Julienne has been selling used clothing since 1999, with a starting capital earned at the village where she used to do agricultural work. Later on Julienne applied for a Hekima loan to support her business. Thanks to this loan she has been able to stock up on used clothing wholesale and bolster her business. Her challenge is bales of used clothing containing poor quality items.

Her goal is to provide an education for her children. In conclusion, Julienne thanks Hekima and its partners for their support of entrepreneurs who lack access to traditional banking.
