Faida Group's story

The borrower, Simisi, is President of the Faida business group. She is a very experienced entrepreneur, married, and mother of four children and many grandsons and granddaughters. Her husband is unemployed and remains too sickly due to old age. The borrower is a seller of shoes. She started her business with a loan from IMF Hekima. She just completed her 20th cycle in Hekima's microcredit program. This new loan will enable her to buy 40 pairs of shoes. The profits from her business will allow her to take care of various household needs (school fees, medical care, food, clothing, etc.) She thanks Hekima for their support and empowerment of female entrepreneurs.
