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

A loan helped to supply 30 pieces of pagnes (colourful fabrics) to strengthen her starting capital.

Heshima Group's story

Ms. Eliza is a customer of the IMF Hekima and president of the banc villageoise 'Heshima'. Married, aged 43, she is a mother of 8 children, of whom six go to school and the other two are still young. Her partner is a carpenter.

Ms. Eliza has been selling pagnes (colourful fabrics) for three years with the start-up funds received from her husband. Later she joined Hekima's loan program to support her business. With this new loan, Eliza is going to supply 30 pieces of pagnes wholesale to strengthen her initial capital. The challenge in her business is the lack of customers.

She wants to educate her children and build a house that will last.

Finally, Ms. Eliza thanks Hekima and its partners for their support towards non-bankable entrepreneurs.
