A loan of $4,525 helped a member to purchase milk, Fanta, and bread for her cafeteria.


Confiance Group's story

Ms. Riziki is a member of the loan group Confiance. She is 50 years old and married to an unemployed man. Together they have nine children, who are all students. The new loan she is requesting will go toward purchasing 10 containers of milk, 15 cases of Fanta, and 2 boxes of bread for her cafeteria. She would like to expand her enterprise, cover her children’s schooling costs, and keep her children well-fed. Thus, she thanks Hekima and encourages it in its initiative to boost the businesses of low-income women.
