A loan of $6,000 helped a member to buy thirty paris of shoes.

Faida Group's story

Simisi is the leader and oldest member of the Faida group. She is 70 years old, married, a mother, and a grandmother to several grandchildren. Her husband is without work.

She sells shoes in a local market. She started this business with funds received from her husband and has been doing this for the last five years.

Simisi is facing unpaid accounts and other losses. This new loan is going to permit her to buy thirty pairs of shoes.

In the future, she would like to build a house and save up her money.

Simisi thanks Hekima for their financial support.
