A loan helped to purchase bundles of secondhand clothing in bulk in order to increase her capital.


Millenium Group's story

Madam Chekyna is a client of Hekima and the vice president of the Millenium group. She is 27 years old and married, with five children. Four of her children are school age. Her husband is a vendor.

Madam Chekyna is a vendor of secondhand clothing; she began her business in 2007 with the financial backing of her husband. Later, she partnered with Hekima in order to support her activities.

With this new loan, Madam Chekyna plans to purchase bundles of secondhand clothing in bulk in order to increase her capital. The main difficulty her business faces is the risk of purchasing bad merchandise in the bundles.

Madam Chekyna hopes to pay for the education of all her children and support her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to non-bankable small business owners.
