A loan helped a member to stock up on wholesale women's clothing which will grow her initial investment capital.


Ericthinda Group's story

Mme Therese is a customer of Hekima IMF and manages the Ericthinda business group. She is married, 48 years old, and mother to 4 school children. Her husband is a driver.

She launched her clothing business 4 years ago with an investment capital provided by her husband. Later, she developed a relationship with the Hekima program to support and gradually evolve her business.

With this new loan she is going to stock up on wholesale women's clothing which will help grow her initial capital. The challenge for her business is the absence of customers and the rise in the US dollar exchange rate due to this global crisis.

She would like her children to continue their education and to purchase a parcel of land and build a rental house. Finally she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support for business owners who do not have access to traditional funding in the context of the Covid 19 global crisis.
