Unyenyekevu Group’s story
Georgette is a businesswoman who sells used shoes at a market in town. She is the treasurer of the ‘banc villageois’ called “Unyenyekevu” and a client of the microfinance institution Hekima. She is married, 42 years old, and the mother of four children, all in school. She is going to purchase 100 pairs of shoes to bolster her business.
She began her business with capital from her husband twelve years ago. Her wish is to build a house and provide schooling and food for her children. So she thanks Hekima for supporting entrepreneurs excluded from the traditional banking system.
