La Victoire 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 beverages produced by [the companies] Bralima and Brasimba, which will strengthen her initial capital.

La Victoire Group's story

Josephine is a client with the microfinance institution Hekima and represents the village group La Victoire. She is 58 years old, widowed and has 10 children, 9 of whom go to school.

She established her business selling beverages 30 years ago using start-up funds she got from her late 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 beverages made by the companies Bralima and Brasimba, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to unpaid debt.

She would like for 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.
