Bénédiction A Group's story
Maombi is a merchant, a member of the Bénédiction A loan group, and a member of the micro-finance institution Hekima. She is a widow, 42 years old, and a mother of four children, of whom three go to school and one is already married. Maombi has been selling used clothing from the town market for 17 years. She started this business with funds she received when she was a seamstress. She is going to buy two bales of used clothing [with her loan]. Maombi wishes to buy a piece of land, and to school and feed her children. Finally, she thanks Hekima for their support of entrepreneurs who lack access to financial services. It should be noted that one of the clients is holding her child [in the photo].
