A loan of $9,000 helped a member to stock up with six bales of top-quality second-hand clothing.


La Merveille Group's story

Christine is a customer of IMF Hekima and a valiant trader, who sells second-hand clothing in the town market. She is a member of the "La Merveille" Banc Villageois, who is 54 years old and mother to ten children, all of whom are studying. She has been carrying out this activity for the past 16 years, using capital that she received from her husband.

She is going to stock up with six bales of top-quality second hand clothing in order to boost her business. She would like to build a permanent home and be able to educate and feed her children. Finally she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to entrepreneurs who cannot access bank funding.
