Destinee 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 on 10 bundles of secondhand shoes, which will increase her starting capital.
Destinee Group's story
Mrs. Medi is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the business group “DESTINEE.” She is a 35-year-old married mother of six, five of whom attend school, and one of which is a baby. Her partner is unemployed. She has a secondhand shoe business, which she started in 2010 with funds she received from her husband. Later, she incorporated the Hekima program to support her business, which progressively grew. With this new loan, she is going to stock up on 10 bundles of secondhand shoes, which will increase her starting capital. The challenge in her business lies in bad merchandise. She would like her children to continue to go to school, and she would like to continue being able to feed them. In the end, she thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to unmarketable business owners in the context of this global crisis due to COVID-19.
