Source De Vie 2 Group's story

Bijoux is a customer of the MFI Hekima and the leader of the "Source de vie 2" village group. She is married, 35 years old, and the mother of 3 children who all attend school. Her partner is a civil servant.

She sells second-hand shoes. She started her business 8 years ago with start-up funds she received from her husband. She later joined Hekima to support her business, which has gradually developed. She will use this new loan to buy 4 lots of second-hand shoes. Her main business challenge is having to deal with bad merchandise.

She would like her children to continue with their education, and to finish construction on her house.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they are giving to owners of non-bankable businesses during the current covid-19 global crisis.
