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

A loan helped to buy 5 bags of plastic shoes to reinforce her business.

Bunvikane Group's story

Madam Eveline is 42 years old, married and the mother of four school-age children. She is the president of the "Bunvikane" banc villageoise and a client of Hekima. She sells plastic shoes in a public area. Her business was first financially backed by her parents, and later through a partnership with Hekima.

With this loan, she plans to purchase 5 bags of plastic shoes in order to strengthen her business. Madam Eveline's dream is to build a house on her plot of land.

Lastly, Madam Eveline would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their financial support to the impoverished.
