Irenge Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy one load of second-hand clothing.

Irenge Group's story

Esperance is a client with the micro-finance institution Hekima and the president of the village group "Irenge." She is married, 35 years old, and a mother of six children, who are all in school. Her partner is an agent in a private company.

Esperance sells second-hand clothing, a business she started 10 years ago with funds she received from her husband. Later, she joined Hekima to support her business, which has been progressively developing. With this new loan, she is going to buy one load of second-hand clothing, which will strenthen her initial capital. One challenge she faces is purchasing a bad load of clothing.

Esperance would like to see her children continue in school and that she can feed her family.

Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and their partners for their support to business owners who lack access to banking services during this COVID-19 global crisis.
