Anonymous's story

The client is a 34-year-old entrepreneur. She is married and the mother of 6 children. Her husband is a builder and mason. She sells used clothing by displaying her merchandise at the central market in Virunga. She has been involved in this type of small retail activity since her youth, when she used to live in her village, before moving to the city of Goma. She has just obtained her 16th loan from Hekima. With this new loan, she will purchase two large bags of used clothing in bulk. Her wish is to see her children grow comfortably. She would also like to buy a plot of land to build on, and see her business prosper. She thanks Hekima for its actions in favor of poor women excluded from the traditional banking system.
