Anonymous Group's story

The client is the president of the loan group Pacifique. A brave and tireless entrepreneur, she is a 46-year-old mother of nine children who all go to school. She sells pagnes at the community market of Nyabushongo. Her husband has been unemployed for several years.

She started her business with loans obtained from Hekima after learning about the MFI’s activities in the city of Goma through her peers. Her profits help to boost her savings, and to pay for food and for her children’s tuition.

Past loans have allowed her to acquire various household items for her family (chairs, radio, etc.). With her business showing growth throughout the last cycle, she has applied for her 5th loan. She will use this new loan to purchase nine pieces of pagnes and various other items.

She wants to see her children grow up comfortably, and plans to expand her business. She wishes to thank the Hekima MFI and its partners for helping low-income women to become self-sufficient.
