Unyenyekevu Group's story

Madam Antoinette is a client of Hekima and the president of the group Unyenyekevu. She is 32 years old, married and the mother of six children, including four attending school and two younger ones. Her husband is a civil servant.
She sells used shoes, a business she started in 2014 with seed money received from her husband. Subsequently, she affiliated with Hekima's loan program to sustain her business. With this new loan, she will buy used shoes wholesale to bolster her initial capital. She does not encounter any business challenges.
She wants to educate her children and buy them a parcel of land. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to non bankable entrepreneurs.
