Gloire A Dieu Group's story

Claudine is a client of IMF Hekima and president of the "Gloire A Dieu" groupe villageoise. She is 40 years old, married and is the mother of ten children who all go to school. Her spouse is unemployed.

She sells flour. She started her business 26 years ago with start-up funds she received from her mother. Later she joined the Hekima program to support her business. During which time she has developed it progressively. With this new loan she will stock up on 5 bags of flour to enhance her initial capital. The challenge in her business comes from the rise in the exchange rate for the American dollar.

She would like to develop her business. In closing she would like to thank Hekima and it's partners for the support provided to unbanked business owners during this time of global crisis brought on by COVID-19. The photo is of the leader only due to COVID-19.
