Benedict Group's story

The client, Pendeza, is the secretary of the Bénédiction loan group. A dynamic woman, she's on her 15th loan cycle. She is the mother of 7, and her husband is currently unemployed. She sells various items and started her business with money she received from her husband. She sells her goods at the public market in Alanine. She has been working on this revenue generating activity for 8 years.

With the loan from IMF Hekima, the client would like to grow her sales volume buying various items (Omo [soap], sugar, gas, beauty lotion, Fanta, shoes, etc.). She says that her current business challenge is all the taxes she has to pay.

In the future, she would like to grow her business, to build (a home) with ease, educate her children, and see her husband find work.

She thanks IMF Hekima for the regular loans that she receives without collateral because it's due to these loans that she can meet the many needs of her family.
