La Promesse Group's story

Our client Nicole is the leader of the La promesse [“The promise”] borrowers’ group.
She is a young entrepreneur, courageous and experienced. She is 36 years old and has five children, all of whom is in school. Her husband is a civil engineering technician. Nicole sells beverage. She launched this business with funds received from her husband about eight years ago. This new loan will allow her to buy three cases of Primus [beer], three cases of Turbo King [beer], two cases of Mutzig [beer] and five cases of Fanta. Given the overall economic crisis and currency exchange losses (Congolese francs into [US] dollars), selling on credit is a main challenge she faces in her business. In the future she would like to expand her business and provide for schooling, nourishment and clothing for her children. Finally, she thanks Hekima for its support in providing microloans to female entrepreneurs.
