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

A loan helped to buy two bales of second-hand clothes, which will strengthen her initial capital.

Jetro Group's story

Christine is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and represents the village group "Jetro". She is 39 years old, married and has seven children who all go to school. Her husband is a driver.

Christine started selling second-hand clothes 10 years ago with starting funds received from her husband. Later, she joined the Hekima program to support her business and it grew progressively. With this new loan, she is going to buy two bales of second-hand clothes, which is going to strengthen her initial capital. Her business is not facing any challenges.

Christine would like to keep her children in school and to build a house. Finally, she wants to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of non bankable business owners in the context of the global health crisis. The photo only shows the group leader due to social distancing measures.
