Anonymous Group's story

The client, age 31, is a member of a loan association. She is a young and courageous entrepreneur who is divorced, aged 31 years old. She is the mother of 3 young children (two boys and a girl), who attend primary school. Despite it all, she takes care of her children. She works with others in a restaurant. She also has a stall where she sells motorcycle parts.

She started her retail business by selling luxury items (small chains, jewelry, rings) in the streets. Later she learned that microcredit was available through the microfinance institution Hekima. This is how she received her first loan of 50 USD, which allowed her to strengthen her business. The profits from her activity help her to put some money into savings, to feed her children and pay for their school fees.

She has just obtained her ninth loan. During that time period, she has seen her business prosper. This is why she has decided to request a larger loan amount for this new cycle. With this loan she will be buying two bags of beans, some potatoes, oil, Fanta, Primus etc., to boost her restaurant activity. She would also like to see her children grow, and to buy a plot of land in the future. She thanks Hekima for helping low-income women become autonomous.
