Lumiere Group's story

Therese is a client of Hekima IMF and the leader of the borrowing group Lumiere. She is married, 38 years old and the mother of 9 school-going children. Her partner is a mason.

She sells second-hand clothing and started this business in 2008 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 will buy used clothing in bulk, which will increase her stock. The challenge in her business is the lack of customers.

She would like to feed her family. She would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the non-monetary support they provide for business owners.
