Heshima 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 15 pagnes and increase her working capital.

Heshima Group's story

Eliza is a client of Hekima and president of the 'groupe villageoise' Heshima. She is 45, married and has 8 children, 6 of which are in school. Her partner is a carpenter.
She has been selling pagnes for 4 years, with start up funds received from her husband. Later she joined Hekima to support her business which has now grown progressively bigger.
With this new loan, she will stock up with 15 pagnes and increase her working capital. Her problem in her business is a lack of clientele and theft.

She would like that her children stay in school and that she may feed her family. She wants to thank Hekima and its partners for their support for non-bankable businesses during the Covid-19 global crisis. The photo is just of her as the group leader, as they respect social distancing.
