Ms. Agatte is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the village group “ARCHANGE”. She is married, 32 years old, and the mother of four children of whom one is in school, and three are not as old. Her partner is a tailor.

A clothier, she began this enterprise in 2010 with startup funding of her own. Later on, she took part in the Hekima program for supporting enterprises and has worked progressively within it.

With this new loan, she is going to acquire a sewing machine and sewing supplies, and this will bolster her initial capital. The challenges in her business has to do with thieves at night.

She would like to purchase a parcel of land and for her children to continue in their studies. So she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash during this global crisis related to COVID-19.
