Centre De Sante Virunga Group's story

Pauline, age 39, is a licensed nurse and the leader of the Virunga health center's nursing and paramedical personnel’s business group. She has seven children who all go to school, and her husband is a merchant who sells various merchandise.

Katsongo’s profession allows her to make a living, and she is comfortable in this career.

This new loan will help her to pursue her project to build a house. She plans to renew this loan in the short term to launch a commercial activity.

She wants to thank the Hekima MFI for supporting nursing personnel through microfinance.
