Plan De Dieu Group's story

Mrs. Wivine is a client of Hekima and leads the Plan De Dieu Group. Mrs. Wivine is a 40-year-old widow and the mother of seven children who all attend school.

Mrs. Wivine sells various goods in her shop, which she opened in 2006 with startup funds received from late husband. Later, she joined Hekima to support her business, and progressed over time. With this new loan, Mrs. Wivine will purchase furniture to stock in her shop: cabinets, chairs, wardrobes, etc. This will strengthen her startup capital. The challenge of Mrs. Wivine's business is linked to the shortage of customers.

Mrs. Wivine would like her children to [continue to] attend school. She would also like to thank Hekima and their partners for the support they provide to small-business entrepreneurs who are excluded from the traditional banking system.
