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

A loan helped to buy used clothing to bolster her initial capital.

Faida Group's story

Mme Tirla is a client of IMF Hekima and oversees the "Faida" groupe villageoise. She is married, 45 years old, and has three dependent children who all go to school. Her partner is unemployed.

Tirla sells used clothing. She started this business in 2004 with her own startup capital. Later on, she joined Hekima's loan program to support her business, which has grown progressively over time.

With this new loan, she will buy used clothing to bolster her initial capital. The challenge with her business is hassles from the police.

She wants her children to continue to go to school and she wants to continue to develop her business. In closing, she thanks Hekima and their partners for their support of non-bankable businesses in the context of the COVID-19 global crisis.
