Honette Group's story

Mrs. Grace is a client of the MFI Hekima and president of the banc villageois "Honette". She is married, aged 39, mother of 6 children, 3 of whom are in school and 3 others that are still too young. Her spouse is a mason.
She is a thrift shop saleswoman. She started her business in 2014, with the starting fund given by her mom. Later she applied for a loan from Hekima to support her activities. With this new loan, she will buy wholesale thrift clothes to strengthen her business. The challenge of her business is linked to the lack of customers.
She wants to educate her children and build a house for the family. In conclusion, she thanks Hekima and its partners for supporting non-bankable entrepreneurs.
