Sinai Group's story

Bitashengwa has been a trader for the past two years and is a member of the Sanai business association; she is a dynamic entrepreneur, who is 26 years old, married and mother to three children, two of whom are studying and the third who is still a small child. She sells a variety of manufactured goods and is requesting a loan from Hekima to expand her business. She began it with funds from her husband, who is an exchange agent. She is going to buy powdered soap, cosmetics, a carton of exercise books, five boxes of pens, matches, cartons of candy, biscuits, sugar, rice, oils, iodized salt, etc. In the future she would like to be able to educate and feed her children. She is extremely grateful to Hekima for its support for female entrepreneurs who are excluded from the classic bank system. It should be noted that one of the customers is carrying her baby in the photo.
