Njiwa Colombe Group's story

Ortence is a Hekima client and president of the 'groupe villageoise' Njiwa Colombe. She is 48, married with 6 children, all of which are in school. Her husband is unemployed.

She has been running a used shoes business for ten years using funds supplied by her husband. Later she joined Hekima to hep support her business which has now grown progressively.

With this new loan, she will stock up on used shoes and increase her business capital. The problem with her business is a lack of customers.

She would like that her children continue their studies and she may feed her family. She wishes to thanks Hekima and its supporters for their support of non-bankable businesses during the Covid-19 global crisis. Because of this, she is the only one in the picture, as they practice social distancing.
