Gala L Group's story
Our client Lunyere is a vendor and the leader of the Gala L business group. This 57-year old entrepreneur is married and the mother of nine children, five of whom are in school and four are already married. Lunyere is a vendor of small fish and a client of Hekima. She displays her merchandise at a remote market of her town. She launched her business with the funds received from her husband, who is out of work. She has been in business for eight years. This loan will allow her to buy 80 kg [180 lbs] of small fish. In this way she would like to pay for her children’s schooling, clothing and food. Finally, she sincerely thanks Hekima for helping female entrepreneurs who do not have access to traditional banking to become financially autonomous.
