Sarepta Group's story

Client Kapinga is an excellent businesswoman. She is the president, and at 65 years, the elder of the group Sarepta. She is married, mother of 10 children, and has several grandchildren. Every one of her 10 children has a university degree. Her husband is an accountant in a public enterprise «National Coffee office (ONC) ». The client is a baker. She also has a shop to optimise her income. She has been a baker for 33 years. She started her business with her own funds from selling the harvest of her field. This harvest was worth about 6$ at that time. This new loan will enable her to stock up on raw materials (20 bags of flour, sugar, yeast, etc.) In addition she aims to expand her business, especially the area for production, and teach her children how to be independent. The client thanks Hekima for their action in favour of poor people who are excluded from the classic banking system.
