A loan helped a member to stock up on shoes in gross to build up her business.


La Clemence Group's story

Nassy is a customer of the microfinance institution Hekima and president of the banque villageoise La Clemence. She is married, 27 years old, and the mother of three children, two of whom study and one does not. Her husband is a motorcycle policeman.

She sells shoes with start up capital given by her husband in 2012, and later she asked for a loan from Hekima, to sustain her business. With this loan, she will stock up on shoes in gross to strengthen her business. The challenge of her job is the lack of customers.

She hopes to continue to educate her children and feed her family. Finally, she thanks Hekima and its partners for the support brought to unbanked entrepreneurs.
