Amour D Group's story

Mukosa is a client who has been a plucky shopkeeper for 20 years. She is 62 and has seven children all of whom are married. This client is a member and president of the «Amour D» business association. She sells oil and is part of a group that has a warehouse. She sets up her merchandise in a busy quarter of the town. She requests a loan from Hekima to expand her activity. She plans to buy 2,500 litres of oil. Her husband is also a storekeeper. She set up her business with money that her husband gave her. In the future, she hopes to increase her capital and contribute to the cost of sending her grandsons to school and their medical expenses. She thanks Hekima for their action in support of women in business who are not bankable, by granting them a loan during this difficult post-war period in the Eastern region of the country.
