A loan helped to stock up on used clothing to reinforce her capital.

Gabrielle Group's story

Mrs. Esperance is a client of IMF Hekima and president of the village group « Gabrielle». She is aged 41, married to a chauffeur, and she has six children. Three of them go to school.

She sells used clothing, she started this business 10 years ago with a startup fund that her husband gave her. Later on, she integrated the Hekima programme to support her enterprise. This has helped her evolve progressively. With this new loan, she will stock up on used clothing to reinforce her initial capital. The main challenge in her work is linked to the state taxes.

She would like to purchase a plot of land. She is grateful to Hekima and their partners for their support for non bankable business owners in this context of global crisis due to covid-19. Only the leader of the group is seen in the photo due to covid-19 so as to respect social distancing.
