Durable Group's story

Charlotte has been selling clothing since 2004 in the village market. She is the president of the "Durable" loan group, a client of Hekima. She is married, 34, and has 3 children. 2 of her children are in school and one is too young. She started off with a loan from the tontine.
With her loan from Hekima, she will stock up on 40 pieces of pagne for her business so she can offer her clients good-quality, in-style items for the end of 2017. She plans to buy a plot of land, and feed and educate her children.
To finish off, she thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they provide entrepreneurs who can't access banks.
