Bénédiction Group's story

This client, Balibonera, is the advisor of the business collective "Bénédiction". A young experience woman entrepreneur, she is 30 years old, married, and the mother of five children, all in school. Her husband is a nurse. This client is an associate in a pharmacy. She is assisted in this enterprise by her husband. She started this work with her own funds received from her husband about four years ago.

This new loan will be used to purchase essential medicines (paracétamol, anti-biotics, anti-inflammatories, deworming drugs, ointments, syringes, etc.) Some obstacles for her enterprise include taxes and administrative red tape.

Thus, she would like to grow her business, providing schooling and food for her children, and build a house. In closing, she thanks Hekima very much for its micro-credit support for small-scale entrepreneurs. It should be noted that certain clients in the photo are holding their babies.
