Subira Mali Group's story

Madame Marie Louise is a client of the microfinance institute Hekima and president of the group Subira Mali. Married, 47 years of age, she is mother to seven children who all study. Her spouse is an electrician.

She is a vendor of a variety of products. She began this business 15 years ago with a launch fund received from Hekima. With this new loan, she will procure 50 bags of flour in bulk to reinforce her initial supply.

The challenge to her business is linked to the state's multiple taxes.

She wishes to send her children to school. In conclusion, she thanks Hekima and its partners for the support given to unbanked entrepreneurs.
