Madam Regine is a client of MFI Hekima and the president of the group Damani. Regine, 66 years old, is married and has eight children, including six attending school and two already married. Her husband works for a private company.
She started selling cosmetics in 2012 with seed money from her son, and has been working with Hekima since to expand her business. With this loan, she wants to buy extensions and jewelry to support her business. Her challenge is with unpaid debt.
She wants to send the rest of her children to school and build a permanent home. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to non bankable entrepreneurs.
