A loan of $8,500 helped a member to buy 27 pagnes for resale.


Générosité A Group's story

Kamate, a merchant, is a member of the business group “Générosité A”. At 35 years old, she is a dynamic entrepreneur and the widowed mother of three children who all go to school.

Kamate sells high quality, super wax pagnes (colorful cloth). She conducts her sales at the local market, which is a busy place. She has partnered with the Hekima MFI for financial assistance.

Kamate has been engaged in this activity for 10 years, and she plans to use this new loan to buy 27 pagnes.

Her goals for the future are to buy a plot of land, and to ensure that her children are fed and educated.

Kamate wishes to thank the Hekima MFI for helping women entrepreneurs to become self-sufficient who cannot use the traditional banking system, especially in these difficult times following the war in the Eastern region.
