but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy extensions and hair pieces and boost her initial capital.

Polepole Group's story

Mme Rifine is a client with Hekima and the president of the village group "Polepole", She is 42 years old, widowed and the mother of five children, all attending school.
She sells hair extensions and hair pieces, a business she started 20 years ago with seed money she provided herself. Subsequently, she turned to Hekima to support her business which developed progressively. With this new loan, she will purchase hair extensions and hair pieces and boost her initial capital. Her business challenge is linked to competition in her field.
She would like to feed her family and for her children to continue their education. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to non bankable business owners in this global crisis situation, due to Covid-19. Only the group leader is pictured, due to Covid-19 and to observe social distancing guidelines.
