A loan of $3,975 helped a member to buy 35 pairs of shoes for resale.

Dynamique Group's story

Charlotte is the president of the Dynamique loan group. She is 38 years old, divorced and mother to four children who all attend school.

Charlotte is a courageous, experienced entrepreneur who sells shoes. She sells the shoes at the public market and, sometimes, from her home. She started her business seven years ago, with her own capital which she earned from the sale of produce from her fields. She later set up in the town and took a loan from the field partner Hekima. This new loan will be used to buy 35 pairs of shoes. With her earnings, Charlotte will pay her children's school expenses, expand her business activities and buy a house for her children.

Theft, non-payment of debts and exchange rate losses are all big challenges to the development of her business.

Charlotte is very grateful to Hekima for helping non-bankable, women entrepreneurs become autonomous, especially in this critical time of war in the east of the country.
