Siege De La Sagesse Group's story

Madame Francine is a client of microfinance institution Hekima and leader of the Siege De La Sagesse group. She is 49 years old and has 9 children who are all in school. Her partner is a merchant.

She started her business selling miscellaneous goods 20 years ago with startup funds from her husband. Later on, she partnered with Hekima to support her business, and it has grown ever since. Her business's main challenge is scarcity of customers. With this new loan, she will purchase clothing and furniture, including armoires and dining room tables. This will increase her working capital.

Francine would like for her children to continue their studies and to build a home. She would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they give to owners of non-bankable businesses during the global Covid-19 crisis. Due to the pandemic, only the group's leader is shown.
