For four years she has been in this business, with funds received from her husband and then also from Hekima. For this loan, she will buy three bales of secondhand clothes, including transport, to reinforce her initial capital. Her major concern is to educate all of her children well. She thanks Hekima and her dear partners for the support they bring to poor people.
