Four of them go to school, the other two are too small. She sells tomatoes. She sets out her merchandise in front of her home on an avenue in the town. She requests a loan from Hekima to enlarge her business. She will purchase one basket of tomatoes. She started her business with funds that her husband gave to her. Her husband is a carpenter. She hopes to enlarge her capital, send her children to school and ensure their well-being. She thanks Hekima for their support for businesswomen by offering them micro-credit without material guarantee when they are excluded from the classic banking system, especially at this time following the unrest in the eastern part of the country.
