Lavictoire Group's story

Our client, Bachinanyi, is the secretary of the business group "La Victoire". She is married and the mother of three young children. Her husband works as a commission agent in the precious stones (minerals) business. Bachinanyi sells Primus beer. She co-manages a small Nganda (pub) located in her house. She started this business using her own funds. Later on, she turned to the microfinance Hekima for financial support. This is her second loan cycle. Bachinanyi will use her loan to buy four crates of Primus, four crates of Amstel, two crates of Fanta etc. She praises the initiative taken by Hekima and dedicated to the empowerment of small female entrepreneurs, because so many of her co-borrowers' households depend on it.
