Paradizo Group's story

Shamamba K. is an entrepreneur. She is 32 years old, a single woman, and the mother of 4 children. She sells used clothing (second-hand). She began her business with her own funds, given by her mother. Later on, she received a loan for $50 from IMF Hemika in 2008. She sets up her products in the small sectoral market of the neighborhood TMK. This new loan should allow her to stock up with one ball of clothing (second-hand). Moreover, she hopes to become a wholesaler of second-hand clothing. The client Shamamba K. thanks Hekima for its work to help the impoverished who are excluded by classic banks.
