Sabinyo Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to buy 67 lengths of pagne [bright, colorful fabric] at wholesale.

Sabinyo Group's story

Dorcas is a client with the micro-finance institution Hekima and is the president of the "Sabinyo" group. She is 38 years old, married, and a mother of five children, who are all in school. Her husband is a merchant.

Dorcas sells pagnes [bright, colorful fabric], a business she started 18 years ago with funds she received from her husband. Later, she joined Hekima to support her business, which is continuing to evolve.

With this new loan, Dorcas will increase her initial capital and is going to buy 67 lengths of pagne at wholesale. A challenge to her business is the instability around the dollar rate.

Dorcas would like to see her children go to school and feed her family.

Finally, she thanks Hekima and their partners for their support to business owner who lack access to banking services.
