L'oreal Group

L'oreal Group's story

Mrs. Josephine is a client of Hekima MFI and president of the village group "L'OREAL". She is married, 50 years old and mother of 10 children who are all in school. Her partner is a doctor.

She sells pharmaceutical products. She started this business 20 years ago with the start-up funds received from her husband. Later, she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will source generic and specialized drugs, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is related to the expiration date of the drugs.

She would like her children to continue studying and she would also like to provide for her family.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-bankable businesses in this context of the global covid-19 crisis. The photo only shows the leader of the group due to Covid-19, in compliance with social distancing measures.
