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


A loan helped to buy a supply of women's and children's clothing, which will strengthen her initial capital.


Emedy Group's story

Zeferine is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and represents the Emedy group. She is 50 years old, married and has 4 children who are all enrolled in school; her partner is a driver.

She established her business selling clothing 22 years ago using start-up funds she received from her husband. Later she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, which has been developing progressively. With this new loan, she will buy a supply of women's and children's clothing, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to the lack of customers.

She would like to feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support shown to business owners without access to traditional banking facilities in the context of the global crisis caused by covid-19.
