Anonymous Group's story

The borrower is the coordinator of the credit group LA VERITE. She is a courageous 32-year-old entrepreneur who is married and the mother of 7 children. All her children, except the youngest one, attend school. Her husband works as a driver for a private organization.

She is a designer and seamstress by training and she works in a sewing shop. She started her business using personal funds received from her husband about five years ago. Later on, around the year 2010, she received her first loan from the microfinance institution Hekima, as additional funding. Thanks to this activity, her children are growing up nicely, since her profits go toward savings, food and her children's education.

She has just obtained her seventh loan cycle. This new loan will be used to purchase sewing supplies (fabrics, lace, thread, buttons, scissors etc.). Additionally, her ambition is to build a comfortable home. She thanks Hekima and its partners for helping low-income women gain independence. It is worth noting that [in the photo] one of the borrowers is carrying her baby.
