A loan helped to stock up on fabric and rolls to strengthen her initial capital.


Biluge Group's story

Ms. Judith, 41, is a client of the IMF Hekima and president of the banc villageois 'Biluge'. She is married to a shopkeeper and is a mother of two children who both go to school.

Judith has been making and selling tablecloths for 15 years with the start-up funds received from a tontine (group savings fund) of 500 Congolese francs per day at the time. Later she joined Hekima's loan program to support her business. With this new loan, Judith will stock up on fabric and rolls to strengthen her initial capital. The challenge in this business is fatigue as the sewing is done by hand.

Judith wants to build a wooden house. Finally she thanks Hekima and its partners for their support towards non-bankable entrepreneurs.
