Ni Wakati Group's story

Gorette is a client of Hekima and chairs the "Ni Wakati" business group. She is married, 40 years old, and mother of four children. Three of her children attend school and one has finished. Her partner is a state agent.

Gorette sells traditional cloth wraps and salted fish. She started this business 15 years ago with start-up funds received from her work. Later she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she has progressively evolved. With this new loan, she will stock up on two bales of traditional cloth wraps, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to unpaid debts.

Gorette would like to feed her family and grow her business. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of non-bankable business owners in the context of the global crisis linked to COVID-19. The photo only shows the group leader due to COVID-19.
