A loan helped to buy Fanta and Vitalo.

Baraka Office Group's story

Therese is a client with the micro-finance institution Hekima and the president of the village group "Baraka Office." She is married, 50 years old, and a mother of five children. Three of the children are in school, while two are finished. Her partner is a merchant.

Therese sells beverages, a business she started seven years ago with funds she recevied from other work activities. Later, she joined Hekima to support her business, which is developing progressively. With this new loan, she is going to buy Fanta and Vitalo, which will strengthen her initial capital. One of her challenges is a lack of customers.

Therese would like to feed her family and see her children continue in school. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and their partners for their support to business owners who lack access to banking services in the context of this global COVID-19 crisis.
