A loan of $4,550 helped a member to buy 40 pieces of pagnes.


Anonymous Group's story

The customer, Kyangu, is a member of a business corporation. She is 36 years old, a dynamic woman and an experienced entrepreneur. She is a vendor at the central market of Virunga. Her husband is a security officer and maintains public order. She started her business at a young age, around 1992, after dropping out of school and before she was married. Kyangu has been regularly receiving loans from Hekima in order to strengthen her business. The profits from her business are used to feed the family, support her children's education and build up her savings. She has just received her 11th loan. Since receiving her first loan, this customer has seen her business prosper significantly. She has therefore decided to increase the amount of her loan for this new cycle. This new loan will serve to pay for 40 pieces of pagnes (highly colourful and decorative West African material). Kyangu would also like to see her children grow up, and build a fence. The customer thanks Hekima for its actions to empower women with lower incomes.
