A loan of $3,275 helped a member to purchase 'pagne' cloth to sell.


Jérusalem Group's story

This client, Kavira, is the president of the loan group "Jérusalem". She is the most senior member, a brave entrepreneur, 51 years old, and a mother of six children, of whom four have their own homes, and two are students. Her husband is a driver. This client sells 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa). She started this business with funds from her husband.

This new loan will be used to purchase 25 lengths of 'pagne' cloth. The financial crisis and insecurity are some of the main obstacles in developing her business. For the future, she would like to expand her enterprise and provide schooling for her children. So, she thanks Hekima for its microcredit support of women entrepreneurs.
