A loan of $2,700 helped a member to purchase 3 bags of manioc flour.


La Verite Group's story

Makoma is the advisor of the borrowing group La Verite ("the truth"). She is a young entrepreneur, experienced, 35 years old and the mother of 5 children, all of whom attend school. Her husband is a tailor.

Makoma is a seller of manioc flour. She sets up her wares in a farm store and sometimes from her home. She began her business with her own funds received from her husband. Later, she received a loan from the microfinance organization Hekima. She has been in the flour selling business for around 4 years.

This new loan will allow Makoma to purchase 3 bags of manioc flour. With this, she hopes to grow her business, provide schooling and food for her children, and build a house. In closing, she is extremely thankful to Hekima for their support of small businesses via microcredit.
