Salomo Group's story

Ancile is a client of the Hekima MFI and president of the Salomo banc villageois. She is married, 54 years old, and mother of 13 children of whom four are in school and the others are independent; her partner is retired.

She is a seller of mixed clothing, having started this business 20 years ago with start-up funds received from her husband. Later, she used the Hekima programme to support her business, over the course of which she has progressively developed.

With this new loan, she will get bulk supplies of men's and women's clothing, which will build up her initial capital. The challenge in this work is related to unpaid debts.

She would like her children to go to school. Lastly, she wishes to thank Hekima and partners for their support of non-bankable business owners.
