Durable Group's story

Mrs. Sarah is a customer of Hekima IMF and presides over the [banque villageoise DURABLE]. She is married, 39 years old and mother of 7 children. All of them go to school, her partner is a driver.

She has been selling gold jewelry for the past 20 years, thanks to startup funds from her husband. Later on, she joined the Hekima program to support her business which has been steadily growing. She plans to use this new loan to stock up on wholesale jewelry which will increase her initial capital. The main challenge she has faced is the lack of customers.

She would like all of her children to go to school and would like to be able to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and their partners for their support of business owners with no cash flow. The clients prefer to be with their children on the photo.
