Anonymous Group's story

This client, is the president of the group La Victoire. She is 48 years old, married, and a mother of eight children. Her husband is unemployed. Her oldest child is 26 years old, and the youngest is 8. All of the children are students.

For 26 years, Faida has had a small business selling Primus beer and Fanta. She started with her own funds from her father. She just completed 17 cycles with the Hekima micro-loan program. She displays her merchandise at her home and sometimes on the roadside. Her major obstacle is that she makes her sales in the national currency (Congolese franc), which has sometimes experienced losses in exchange with the dollar.

With this new loan, Faida is going to stock up with 50 cases of Primus and Fanta. The rest of the money will be used for investments. She wishes to see her children finish their studies and to expand her business.

This client bravely salutes the microfinance institution Hekima for its actions favoring poor women excluded from traditional banks.
