Volonte Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to buy 20 bales of second-hand clothing which will reinforce her financial capital.


Volonte Group's story

Mme Nana is a Hekima IMF client and the leader of the business group VOLONTE. She is married, 51 years old and the mother of 19 children, 6 of whom attend school and 4 are managers, partners and working in sales.

She sells second-hand clothing. She began this business 25 years ago with the start up funds which her husband provided. Later, she joined the Hekima program to support her business and over time it has progressively evolved. With this new loan, Mme Nana will buy 20 bales of second-hand clothing which will reinforce her financial capital. The challenge in her business is tied to a lack of customers.

She would like for her children to continue studying at school and to be able to feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to small non-bankable businesses in the context of the global crisis connected to Covid-19. The picture is only of the group's leader due to Covid-19 and to respect the social distancing measures.
