Esther A Group's story

Dongo is a merchant and a member of the business group Esther A. She is an entrepreneur, 36 years old, married, and a mother of six children. Five of the children are in school, while the sixth is still a child.

Dongo has been selling vegetables and spices for 14 years. She displays her goods in a small town market. She started this business from funds she received from her husband, who is a police officer.

This new loan will serve to buy amaranth, cabbage, eggplant, tomatoes, onions, leeks, etc.

Dongo would like to buy a piece of land, build [a home] and educate, clothe, and feed her children.

To finish, she strongly thanks Hekima for helping women who lack access to banking services become independent; especially during this critical post-conflict period in the east of the country.
