Anonymous's story

This customer is a businesswoman who is 46 years old, married and mother to eight young children as well as several grandsons. Her husband works in a local artisanal brasserie and she sells corn. She has been carrying out these kinds of small income-generating activities for the past 20 years. Meanwhile, she has just been granted her 17th loan from Hekima. This new loan will be used by her to stock up with ten tons of corn, etc. She would in the future like to see her children grow up comfortably and expand her business as well as being able to live the rest of her life in peace. The customer thanks Hekima for its actions in favour of poor women who do not have access to classic banks.
