A loan of $3,850 helped a member buy two bags of beans and three bags of charcoal.

Armée Du Salut Group's story

The client Kibindu is a merchant and member of the "Armée du Salut" business group. A 30-year-old entrepreneur, she is married with three small children, of whom one attends school.

The client sells beans and charcoal. She displays her goods at home in a commercial district of the city. She started her business with funds received from Hekima. Her spouse is also a merchant. She has been performing this activity for the past three years.

This new loan will serve to buy two bags of beans and three of charcoal. She would like to buy a plot, build a house, and educate, clothe and feed her children.

Finally, she thanks Hekima considerably for empowering non-bankable women entrepreneurs, especially during this critical time in the post-conflict region of the country. It should be noted that certain clients carry their babies.
