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

A loan helped to buy 300 wood planks to sell.

Louange Group's story

Mrs. Rachel is a client of the Hekima MFI and the president of the LOUANGE group. She is the 35-year-old married mother of five school-educated children, and her husband is a driver.

Mrs. Rachel sells wood planks. She started this activity six years ago with funding supplied by her husband. She later joined Hekima to help sustain her business which saw a progressive growth. She will use this new loan to buy 300 wood planks. Her activity's challenge is the scarcity of stock. She wants her children to pursue their education, and she would also like to diversify her products for sale.

She wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for helping non-bankable business owners in this context of global pandemic.
