Jerusalem Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to replenish her supply of pagnes.

Jerusalem Group's story

Madame Verena is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution and president of the Jereusalem banc villageois. Married and 50 years old, she is the mother of six children who are all educated. Her spouse is a driver.

She sells pagnes and started this business 11 years ago with startup funding received from her husband. Later she requested a loan from Hekima to support her activities. With this new loan, she will stock up on pagnes in bulk to reinforce her initial supply. The challenge in this business is tied to the lack of customers.

She would like to grow her business and support her children's education. In closing, she also would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to clients who aren't able to borrow from banks.
