A loan helped a member to pay for 5 bales of secondhand clothing and their transportation costs in order to bolster her business.


Mufariji Group's story

Ms. VENANTIE is the president of the 'banc villageois' named “MUFARIJI”, and she sells secondhand clothing at the local central market. A client of the microfinance institution, she is 63, married, and the mother of three children, who are no longer in school.

Having worked in commerce since she was young, she had received funds from her parents and then from her husband, who is also a merchant, and then from Hekima. For this loan, she is going to pay for five bales of secondhand clothing and the transportation costs in order to bolster her business.

Her main concern is to provide an education and food to all of her children and under good conditions, as well as to open a large warehouse, so as to serve more customers. She thanks Hekima and its dear partners for financially supporting those with low incomes.
