Irenge 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 six bundles of used clothes, which will strengthen her initial capital.


Irenge Group's story

Mme Esperance is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the groupe villageoise Irenge. She is married, aged 35, and the mother of 7 children, 5 of whom are in school. Her partner works in a private company.

She is a used-clothes vendor. She started this business 18 years ago with start-up funds received from her husband. Later, she got involved in the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she progressively improved. With this new loan, she is going to stock up on six bundles of used clothes, which will strengthen her initial capital. The weakness in her business is linked to bad merchandise.

She would like for her children to continue to study and to feed her family. Thus, she thanks Hekima and its partners for the support given to business owners without means in the context of the global crisis linked to Covid-19. The photo is only of the leader of the group because of Covid-19 and respect for the social distancing measures.
