Groupe Scolaire Faraja

Congo (Dem. Rep.)
Goma, North Kivu province, Congo (Dem. Rep.) / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $6,900 helped a member to develop his housing project and purchase new furniture and equipment for his home.


Groupe Scolaire Faraja's story

Baeni is the Dean and leader of a teacher's collective called "Group Scolaire Faraja". He is a 64-year-old father of nine children, some of whom are in school and some of whom already have their own homes. His wife sells foodstuffs and miscellaneous products.

Baeni is comfortable with his teaching job, but his salary is insufficient to make large investments. This new loan will help him with his housing project and allow him to purchase new furniture and equipment for his home (chairs, wardrobe, appliances, etc.). Afterward, he would like to renew his loan and start a housing construction project for his tenants. He strongly thanks Hekima for its support and micro-lending to teachers.

In this group: Lwendo, Katembo, Fundi, Lukineyo, Baeni, Kasiwa
