Les Sages 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 women's and children's clothing to resell.

Les Sages Group's story

Ms. Esther is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the village group “LES SAGES”; she is married, 42 years old, and the mother of seven children, all provided with schooling. Her partner is a driver.

A vendor of goods in general, she started this enterprise thirteen years ago with startup funding from her husband. Later on, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her enterprise and has since been working progressively in it.

With this new loan, she will stock up on women’s and children’s clothing, and this will bolster her initial capital. The challenge in her business has to do with missing customers.

She would like to build a solid house and for her children to continue their studies. So she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash during this global crisis linked to COVID-19.
