Alpha Group's story

This client, Mbilika, is the advisor of the business group "Alpha". The most senior member and an experience entrepreneur, she is 58 years old, married, and the mother of six children, all students. Her husband is representative at a private company. This client is an associate at a stationary store. She started in this business with funds from her husband. She has been in this business for four years.

This new loan will be used to purchase 3 boxes of reams of paper, 5 dozen notebooks, 3 boxes of pens, 15 dozen folders, etc. The obstacles in developing her enterprise include various taxes. So, she would like to grow her capital and feed her children. To conclude, she thanks Hekima very much for its micro-credit support of small-scale entrepreneurs.
