Esther Lisanga Group's story

Yvone is a client at Hekima IMF and the leader of the borrowing group Esther Lisanga. She is married, 42 years old and the mother of 9 children, of whom 8 go to school and one is younger. Her partner is a hairdresser.

She sells hair extensions and wigs. She started this business in 2010 with start-up funds from her husband. Later on, she turned to Hekima to support her business, while it gradually expanded. With this new loan, she can buy wigs and hair extensions in bulk, which will increase her stock. The challenge in her business is the lack of customers and the different state fees.

She would like for her children to continue to go to school and to be able to feed her family. She wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the non-monetary support for the business owners. The clients prefer to be with their children in the picture.
