Manne Du Ciel Group's story

This client, Shabafuko, is a good and honest merchant and a member of the ’banc villageois’ called “Manne du Ciel”. A senior entrepreneur and an energetic woman, she is 49 years old, divorced, and the mother of three children, who are all students. This client is a vendor of beverages. She sets up her merchandise at a distribution center in a business district in town, where she figured out how to earn her customers.

She started her business with initial capital from her blood relatives. Later on, she benefited from a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima. She has been in this business for 30 years. This new loan will be used to purchase 50 cases of soft drinks and 100 cases of Primus beer, etc. Thus, she would like to build a nice house and provide schooling and food for her children.

In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for supporting autonomy among small-scale entrepreneurs excluded from the traditional banking system.
