A loan of $3,575 helped a member buy 40 bags of corn.

Safi Group's story

The member Furaha is an advisor to the "Safi" business association. She is a young experienced entrepreneur, 35 years of age and mother of seven children, all studying.

The group member sells corn. She sets up her shop in an agricultural depot (granary). She started her business with her own funds received from her husband, more than 5 years ago. The group member has already achieved many micro-projects for her family thanks to this business activity.

This new loan will be used to buy 40 bags of corn. She intends to expand her business, start a modern livestock project, educate her children and build a nice house.

Finally, she strongly thanks Hekima for its micro-credit support to small non-bankable entrepreneurs. It should be noted that one of the group members has her child sitting on the ground.
