Divine Group's story

Badesire B. is an entrepreneur, and president of the group Divine. She is 48 years old and mother of 6 fatherless children. In spite of their situation, her children continue their studies comfortably. She sells various products from a stall at her home. She started up her business with her own money. She received a loan of 50$ from the IMF Hekima in 2004 when she worked with the Shangilieni group. This new loan should allow her to buy new articles (sugar, cooking salt, soap, sweets, matches, biscuits etc.) to increase her stock in volume and value. In addition, she aims to purchase a motorbike in order to provide an urban taxi service. Badesire B. would like to thank Hekima for their action in favour of the poor who are excluded from classic bank loans. It should be pointed out that the Divine group is made up of 33 members.
