A loan helped to purchase a bale of secondhand clothing.

Saine Group's story

Madame Juliette is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and leads the Saine Group. She is 29 years old, married to a carpenter, and has 3 children, the oldest of whom is in school.

Juliette sells secondhand clothing. She started her business in 2018 with startup funds from Hekima, and it has grown steadily since then. Her main challenge is scarcity of customers. With this new loan, she will purchase one bale of clothing, which will increase her working capital.

She would love for her children to continue their studies and to feed her family. Juliette would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to owners of non-bankable businesses in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis. Due to the pandemic, only the group's leader is shown in the photo.
