A loan of $6,000 helped a member to purchase 30 pairs of shoes.


Esperance Group's story

This client, Mihali, is the head of her business group Esperance. She is a brave entrepreneur, 50 years old, a widow, and the mother of six children, who are all students. Sadly, her husband died following a brief illness. This client sells shoes. She sets up her merchandise at the market downtown. She started this business around 1992 with her own funds received from her husband when alive. This new loan will serve to purchase 30 pairs of shoes for her.

This client would like to see her children finish their studies. So, she thanks Hekima very much for supporting her with micro-loans. It should be noted that some clients are obscured due to the small space in which the photo was taken.
