Six of her children are studying and three are married. She sells used shoes, and she displays her business at a market in the center of town. She is requesting a loan from Hekima to increase her activity. She will buy 400 pairs of shoes. Her spouse is a civil servant in public administration. She started with funds received from her husband. In the future, she would like to finish her house, keep her children in school and feed them.
