Source De Vie 2 Group's story

Bijoux is a customer of Hekima IMF and president of the "Source de Vie 2" Banc Villageois. She is 37 years old, married and mother to three children, who are all at school. Her husband is a government official.

She sells used shoes and began this business eight years ago with an initial capital received from her husband. Later on she joined the Hekima program to support her business, which has steadily progressed during this time.

With this new loan, she is going to buy two bales of used shoes in order to boost her initial capital. The challenge in her activity relates to bad quality shoes which are sometimes found in the bales.

She would like to be able to feed her family and help her husband with the household expenses. Finally she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to business owners who have no access to classic bank funding in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis. In view of this crisis, the photo is of the group leader only.
