Anonymous Group's story

This client is the leader of the Sarepta business group. She is a dynamic, indefatigable entrepreneur 40 years of age. She is divorced and the mother of eight young children. She sells small gift items and cosmetics (jewelry, necklaces, chain bracelets, rings, lipstick, makeup base, hair extensions). She sets up her wares on the street, selecting a strategic location to attract the attention of customers, particularly Congolese women used to the contemporary global fashions. She launched her business with her own capital received from a relative. She has been earning income in this way for four years. She just finished eight loan cycles with Hekima. This new loan will allow her to stock up on miscellaneous small items (jewelry, necklaces, chain bracelets, rings, lipstick, makeup base, hair extensions etc) for resale. In addition, she would like to open a major store in the city of Goma and to see her children grow up in comfortable conditions. This client thanks Hekima for its action dedicated to helping impoverished women gain their economic and financial independence..
