She sells miscellaneous items, she started this business eight years ago with startup funds received from her husband. Later she got involved with Hekima to support her business, over the course of which she evolved progressively. With this new loan, she will buy sugar, milk, and oil, which will reinforce her initial capital. Her business reports no problems.
She would like for her children to continue to study, and to develop her business. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and their partners for the support they offer to business owners without traditional banking access in the context of the global crisis tied to Covid-19.
