Les Champions Group's story

Mme Dorcas is a Hekima IMF client and a member of the village group LES CHAMPIONS. She is 20 years old, married and her spouse works in a private company.

Five years ago using the start up funds she provided herself, she began selling plastic shoes. Later she became involved in the Hekima program and her business has grown progressively. This new loan will allow her to purchase plastic shoes which will reinforce her working capital. The challenge with her business is tied to insufficient capital.

Mme Dorcas would like to be able to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to non-bankable business owners during the global Covid-19 crisis. The photo is of the leader alone due to the social distancing measures necessitated by Covid-19
