A loan helped to stock up on children's clothing in bulk.

Changamuka Group's story

Ms. Angeline is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the 'banc villageois' named “CHANGAMUKA”; she is 39, married, and the mother of ten children (eight in school, two still underaged). Her partner is a merchant.

A vendor of clothing, she started this enterprise in 2002 with startup funds from her husband. Later on, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her enterprise and has been working progressively since then.

With this new loan, she will stock up on children’s clothing in bulk. And this will bolster her initial capital. The business challenges have to do with a limited customer base.

She would like her children to go to school, and she would like to feed her family. So, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash. In the photo, the clients prefer to be with their children.
