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

La Tendance Group's story

Sifa is a client with the micro-finance institution Hekima and the president of the business group called "La Tendance." She is married, 32 years old, and a mother of four children, who are all in school. Her partner is unemployed.

Sifa sells planks of wood. She started this business in 2015 with start-up funds she received from Hekima. Her business continues to develop. With this new loan, she is going to buy a lot of planks of wood [to be transported] in a vehicle, which will increase her intitial capital. A challenge to her business relates to a lack of customers.

Sifa would like to feed her family and her children to 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.
