Fidelite Group's story
Kabene K. is the leader of the Fidelity group. She is 32 years old, a widow, and the mother of five. Her husband passed away in 2006. All her children are in school. She launched her business with her own funds. She sells fresh Thompson’s’ surgeonfish and freshwater and ocean fish. She had a loan of $50,- from IMF Hekima around 2007. Before going into fish sales, she used to sell used shoes. This new loan will allow her to purchase three boxes of Thompson’s surgeonfish in Kinshasa. As a Hekima client, Kabene K. is appreciative of its activities to support the poor who don’t have access to traditional banking. It needs to be mentioned that the Fidelity group has 14 members, mostly women.
