Sauti Ya Wa Mama Group's story

Ms. Agnes is a client of Hekima IMF and chairs the banc villageois, Sauti Ya Wa Mama Group. She is married, 46 years old and mother of 12 children including 3 who are already deceased, and 9 who are in school; her partner is a tailor.
She sells second-hand clothes and started the business in 2001 with start-up funds received from her husband. Later she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually evolved. With this new loan, she is going to stock up on wholesale second-hand clothes, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to a lack of customers.
She would like her children to go to school and to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to owners of non bankable businesses. Customers prefer to be with their children in the photo.
