Joyeuse Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to stock up on 8 pieces of super african print fabric which will strengthen her initial capital.

Joyeuse Group's story

Ms. Francoise is a client of Hekima IMF and chairs the village group “JOYEUSE”; She is married, 59 years old and mother of 10 children who are all in school, her partner is a tailor.
She is an african print fabric seller, she started this business 15 years ago with the start-up funds received from her Big Brother. Later she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will stock up on 8 pieces of super african print fabric, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her activity is linked to the lack of customers and unpaid debts.
She would like her children to continue studying and develop her business. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-cash-converting businesses in this context of the global covid-19 crisis.
