Durable Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to stock up on wholesale traditional wrap arounds to reinforce her initial capital.


Durable Group's story

Charlotte is a client of the IMF Hekima, and president of the "Durable" banc villageois. She is married, 35 years old, and mother of three children, all of whom attend school. Her spouse is a state agent.

Charlotte sells traditional wrap arounds in her shop. She began this business in 2005 with the start-up fund received from her big sister. Later, she requested a loan from Hekima to support her business. With this new loan, she will stock up on wholesale traditional wrap arounds to reinforce her initial capital. Her business's challenge is lack of customers.

She wants to buy a plot of land for her son. Finally, she thanks Hekima and its partners for supporting non-bankable entrepreneurs.
