Bonne Nouvelle Group's story

Barhabuligwarhiro N., an entrepreneur and the president of the business group "Bonne Nouvelle," is 47 years old, married and the mother of 8 children, who all go to school. Her husband is a teacher and the principal of a primary school. She runs a small business selling various items. She has a lightly-equipped boutique on her plot of land. She began her business with her own funds, received from her husband. She has been in business for 10 years. She has had 6 operational cycles receiving loans from the IMF Hekima. This new loan will allow her to stock up on new items (a drum of Rina refined table oil, a box of cookies, 25 kilograms of sugar, a dozen beauty lotions, etc). Moreover, she hopes to grow her business and diversify the products. The client Barhabuligwarhiro N. thanks Hekima for its investments in favor of the poor excluded from classic banks. It is suitable to point out that the business group "Bonne Nouvelle" is mostly women.
