Faida Group's story

The customer, Kalivanda, has been a seamstress for the past 12 years, and she is also secretary and member of the Faida business group. She is 36 years old, a widow and mother to four children, who are all studying. She takes care of knitting and is a member/shareholder of a workshop which is in her home. She is requesting a loan from Hekima to expand her business, and this new loan will be used to buy new materials: fabrics, yarns, knitting machine etc. She began her business with capital her husband gave her when he was alive. In the future she would like to build a workshop to initiate a business in, and also to educate and feed her children. She thanks Hekima for its support to female entrepreneurs by granting them loans without any material guarantee.
