A loan helped to buy eight pigs to develop her business, including transport.

Maombi Group's story

Anne Marie is the leader of the Maombi 'banque communautaire' (borrowing group) with the Hekima IMF. She is 41, married, and mother of four children who are all in education.

She started trading pig meat in 2007, initially funded by the husband, then Hekima. She will use this loan to buy eight pigs, including transport, to develop her business.

She wants to have another big butcher shop in town but also to educate all her children. Georgine says a big thank you to Hekima and partners for their work for the disadvantaged.
