Michael Group's story

Solange has been a determined retailer for eight years now. She is a member, and president of the business group 'Michael'. Solange is 37 years old, married and mother to eight children, four of whom currently attend school and four of whom are too young for school. Solange sells fuel at the crossroads of busy avenues in her town. She has requested this loan from the field partner, Hekima, in order to expand her business. Her husband is also a retailer and he provided the initial funds for Solange to start her business. She plans to use her loan to buy 100 litres of petrol and 100 litres of diesel. In the future, Solange would like to expand her business, build a house and feed and educate her children. She is grateful to Hekima for the support that they offer to non-bankable, women entrepreneurs, through their unsecured loan system.
