A loan of $7,600 helped a member to buy 1 bale of women's second-hand clothing for resale.

Ahadi Group's story

Julienne is a retailer and a member of the business group 'Ahadi'. She is 32 years old, married and mother to seven children, who all attend school. She has been selling second-hand, women's clothing for ten years now, from a busy local market.

Julienne has requested this loan from the field partner, Hekima, in order to expand her business. Her husband is also a retailer, and she started her business with money provided by him. She plans to use her loan to buy one bale of second-hand women's clothing.

In the future, Julienne would like to increase her working capital, and educate, clothe and feed her children. She is grateful to Hekima for the support they provide to women entrepreneurs who are excluded from the classic banking system.
