A loan of $2,600 helped a member to buy vegetables.

La Conscience Group's story

Sofi is the leader of the “La Conscience” business group. She is an experienced business woman and the most senior member of the group. She is 63 years old, married and the mother of 10 children, some of whom already have families of her own. Her husband works in IT.

Sofi sells vegetables at the market. She began this business four years ago with her own money that she received from her husband.

This new loan will help her buy vegetables. During the dry season, she has difficulties finding produce. So she is seeking to increase her capital and feed her children.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima for providing support through microcredit to small-scale entrepreneurs.

It should be noted that one group member is holding her baby.

In this group: Mayoyo, Jolie, Kajeri, Simbizi, Mpala, Bujawayesu, Leonce, Kabuno, Veronique, Suzana, Dyalufa, Yvone, Siyapata, Buyohini, Kyabu, Baanitsa, Muhesi, Muhesi, Eledor, Mawa, Sofi, Geretrude, Muhesi, Zaninka, Butaka, Banzikiri, Malekani, Naibahema, Bizabavaho, Pengine, Jacquie
