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

A loan helped to stock up with Omo (laundry soap), sugar, flour, juice, cookies and candies which will build up her seed capital.

La Sagesse Group's story

Therese is a client of the IMF Hekima and presides over the solidarity group "La Sagesse". She is divorced, 48 years old and the mother of three children, one of whom is in school. She sells various products in a small shop. She started this business in 2016 with start up funds received from her AGR (income generating activity). Later, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business over the course of which she progressively evolved. With this new loan, she is going to stock up with Omo (laundry soap), sugar, flour, juice, cookies and candies, which will build up her working capital. The challenge in her business is tied to the lack of customers. She would like to develop her business. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to nonbankable business owners in this situation of the global crisis tied to COVID-19. The picture is of only the leader of the group due to COVID-19.
