A loan of $6,025 helped a member to buy 2 bales of socks.


Zawadi Group's story

Charlotte, the customer, is an advisor to the business group "Zawadi". A young and dynamic entrepreneur with a lot of experience, she is 28 years old, divorced and the mother of a child who goes to school. Charlotte sells socks. She displays her products at the market and, occasionally, at home. She started her business with a basic loan from the MFI Hemika about 5 years ago. This new loan will be used to buy 2 bales of socks. She would like to increase her business, to feed and educate her child and to buy a plot of land and build a nice house on it. Her lack of sufficient funds is a challenge to the development of her business. Finally, she would like to strongly thank Hekima for its support of small entrepreneurs in the form of microloans. Note: one of the customers in the photo is carrying her baby.
