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

A loan helped to stock up on fried and salted fish in bulk.

La Qualite Group's story

Ms. Jeanne is a client of the microfinance institution HEKIMA and presides over the solidarity group named “LA QUALITE”; she is 53 and a widow with four children, all schooled.

A vendor of fried and salted fish, she started this enterprise in 1989 with startup funds from small revenue-generating work. 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 fried and salted fish in bulk. And this will bolster her initial capital. The business challenges are related to security at the sale venue.

She would like her children to go to school. So, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash.
