Esta Group's story

This client, Faida, is the advisor of the business group Esta. She is a talented entrepreneur, 34 years old, divorced, and the mother of five young children. She is a vendor of makeup for women and is an associate of a hair salon. She displays her products in a hair salon. In addition to this business, she makes braids and also styles hair for women. She started this business with a Hekima loan. In that regard, she just completed four cycles in this micro-loan program.

The major challenge of her business is low capital. This new loan must serve to supply her with 20 hair extensions. In the future, she wishes to buy a plot of land and cover her children's school fees. So she thanks Hekima for thinking about small entrepreneur.
