A loan of $6,000 helped a member to purchase corn and cases of beverages from a brewery.


Sheria Group's story

This client, Luanda, is an entrepreneur and the leader of the business group Sheria. She is about 46 years old and the mother of seven children. Her husband had died unexpectedly. This client has a small business selling corn. She sets up her goods in the outlying district of Kiziba II. For about sixteen years, she has worked in small-scale commerce. She also sells beverages (Primus, Fanta, colas, etc.) out of her home in order to accumulate more revenues.

In 2005, she benefited from an initial loan from the microfinance institution Hekima to bolster her capital. This new loan must serve to supply her with 3 sacks of corn and some drinks from a brewery (2 cases of Primus, 2 cases of Aigle, 2 case of Fanta). Her ambition is to make her enterprise sustainable and to build a house with ease.

This client thanks Hekima for its actions dedicated to financial and economic freedom for poor women.
