Ephata Group's story

Madam Devotte is a client of Hekima. She presides over the Ephata Group. Thirty-one years old, she is married and mother to three school-age children. Her partner is a humanitarian.

Madam Devotte is a vendor of secondhand clothing. She began her business in 2017 with the financial backing of her husband. Later on she partnered with Hekima in order to support her business, which has developed progressively.

With this loan, Madam Devotte plans to stock up on merchandise by purchasing 1 bundle of secondhand clothing, which will reinforce her initial capital. The main difficulty her business faces is the current lack of customers.

Madam Devotte hopes to use the revenue from her business to assist her family.

Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to non-bankable small business owners, especially in the contect of the Covid-19 crisis.
