A loan of $3,175 helped a member to purchase sugar cane.


La Source Group's story

This client, Zefania, is the team leader of the business collective "La Source". The most senior member and an experienced entrepreneur, she is 65 years old, a widow, and the mother of four children, all with their own homes. Her husband is deceased due to a heart ailment. This client sells sugar cane. She sets up her goods at the public market and sometimes at home. She started this business with funds from her husband when he was alive, about 25 years ago. This new loan will be used to purchase 5 piles of sugar cane. Thus, she would like to increase her capital and build a house to pass down to her children. In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for its micro-credit support of small-scale entrepreneurs.
