La Grace Baco 2 Group's story

Florance is a Hekima client and chairs the "La Grace Baco 2" village group. She is married, 38 years old, and mother of six children, all of whom attend school. Her partner is an engineer.

Florance sells secondhand clothing. She launched this business five years ago with start-up funds received from her husband. Later, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she has gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will stock up on one bale of secondhand clothing, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is tied to price instability in the market.

She would like for her children to continue their studies and to feed her family. Finally, she wants to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of non-bankable business owners in the context of the global crisis linked to COVID-19.
