Premice Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy pagnes [bright, colorful fabric] at wholesale.

Premice Group's story

Yacintha is a client of the micro-finance institution Hekima and the president of the banque villageois 'Premice.' She is 60 years old, married, and a mother of eight children. One of the children are in school, while the other seven are finished. Her husband is unemployed.

Yacintha sells pagnes [bright, colorful fabric], which she started doing in 2012 with funds she received from a friend. Later she joined Hekima's loan program to support her business. With this new loan, she is going to buy pagnes at wholesale to increase her stock.

One challenge she faces is debts that have not been paid.

Yacintha wishes to build a house to rent out. Finally, she thanks Hekima and their partners for their support to entrepreneurs who lack access to banking services.

As a note: one of the clients has her child in the photo.
