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

A loan helped to supply herself with 50 bags of cement, triplex, sheet metal, and 6 rods, which will strengthen her starting capital.

Blessing Shop Group's story

Ms Prudence is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the group villageoise Blessing Shop. She is married, age 44, and the mother of six children who all go to school. Her partner is a humanitarian aide.

She sells hardware products. She began this business in 2016 with startup funds she received from her husband. Later she became involved with the Hekima program to support her business, which has gradually improved. With this new loan, she's going to supply herself with 50 bags of cement, triplex, sheet metal, and six rods, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge to her business is related to the current confinement.

She would like her children to continue their studies. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for providing support to business owners with no access to capital in the context of this global covid-19 crisis. The photo is of the leader of the group alone, because of covid-19.
