A loan of $9,900 helped a member to purchase jeweled necklaces to sell.

Justice Group's story

This client, Kiso, is an advisor of the loan group "Justice". She is a young entrepreneur, experienced, energetic, and a mother of four children, who are all students. Her husband is a broker. Kiso is a jewelry vendor. In addition, she occasionally sells 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa). She sets up her merchandise at the public market and sometimes at her home. She started her business with her husband's assistance. Later on, she benefited from a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima. She has been in this business for twelve years.

This new loan is going to be used to purchase jeweled necklaces. Thus, she would like to provide schooling to her children, expand her business plans, and build a nice house. Challenges for developing her business include theft and outstanding debt.

In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for promoting autonomy among unbanked women entrepreneurs, especially during this critical time of war in the country's east.
