A loan helped a member to buy second-clothing.


Moise Group's story

Clementine is a client of the micro-finance institution Hekima and the president of the village group called "Moise." She is married, 50 years old, and a mother of ten children, who are all in school. Her partner is a tailor.

Clementine sells second-hand clothing. She started this business in 2011 with start-up funds she received from her mother. Later, she joined Hekima to support her business, which continues to evolve. With this new loan, she is going to buy second-hand clothing, which will strengthen her initial capital. One challenge to her business relates to a lack of customers.

Clementine would like to see her children continue in school. She would also like to feed her family and finish a construction project. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and their partners for their support to business owners who lack access to banking services during the context of the global COVID-19 crisis. In the photo, there is only the leader of the group due to the social distancing measures in place for COVID-19.

In this group: Chantale, Sengemoja, Clementine, Yvette, Immacule, Beatrice, Alphonsine, Odette, Rachel, Jeannette, Maska, Jeanette, Neema, Heritier, Riziki, Devotte, Immacule, Christine
