Madam Therese is a client of MFI HEKIMA, and the vice-president of the solidarity group Eritchinda. She is 49 years old, married and the mother of seven children all attending school. Her husband is a driver.
She sells various products in her store which she started twenty years ago with seed money received from her husband. Later, she became a client of Hekima's loan program to support her business. With this new loan, she will buy sugar, detergent, rice, juice, etc. to strengthen her starting capital. Her business faces challenges linked to the lack of customers.
She wants to educate her children and renovate her house. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to non bankable entrepreneurs.
