Paulo Na Sila Group's story

Emilenne is a courageous client. She is 43 and an entrepreneur with innovative initiatives. She is the mother and guide of ten children who all study. She sells groceries, and she also sells fruit. Her speciality is the sale of organic produce. She gets her supplies from the small corners at the back of villages. She works with her husband in this business.
She has been doing this for 20 years thanks to her husband's financial support. She has a lot of business experience.
With this new loan, she will buy 20 sacks of potatoes, 10 sacks of beans, 50 stems of plantains etc; to meet the demand from her customers.
Among her future plans is the construction of a beautiful house. She thanks Hekima and their partners for the support given to entrepreneurs without banking facilities. Thanks to loans from Hekima, she takes care of her family. It is worth pointing out that the photo was taken at Hekima's office. There was a lot of activity with several clients in the building. The image shows customers in the background who are there to take out or to repay their loans.
