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

A loan helped to buy a supply of women's shoes wholesale to strengthen her initial capital.

La Main Dans La Main Group's story

Madeleine is a client with the microfinance institution Hekima and represents the business group "La Main dans la Main". She is 37 years old, married and has 4 children, 3 of whom attend school. Her partner is a teacher.

She established her business selling women's shoes 3 years ago using start-up funds she got from her husband. Later she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, which has been developing progressively. With this new loan, she will stock up on women's shoes wholesale, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to governmental taxes.

She would like her children to continue their studies and wants to feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support shown to business owners without access to traditional banking facilities in the context of the global crisis caused by covid-19.
