A loan helped a member to stock up with womens clothing in bulk, which will build up her initial capital.


Marc Group's story

Sara is a client of the IMF Hekima and presides over the lending group «MARC». She is married, 41 years old and the mother of four children, all of whom are in school. Her partner is a driver.

She sells womens clothing. She started this business in 2009 with start up funds received from her husband. Later, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she progressively evolved. With this new loan, she is going to stock up with womens clothing in bulk, which will build up her initial capital. The challenge of her business is tied to the exchange rate.

She would like to buy a parcel of land and to feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to nonbankable business owners.
