Shekina Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy supplies of cartons and a large quantity of nails to strengthen her business.

Shekina Group's story

Adolphine is a client at IMF Hekima and the president of the Shekina unified group. She is married, 50 years old and the mother of 4 children who are all studying. Her partner works for a humanitarian organization.

She is a trader of hardware products with the start-up funds given by her husband in 2013. She subsequently requested a loan from Hekima to support her business. With this loan, she will buy cartons and wholesale nails to reinforce her business. Her activity is challenging due to the lack of customers.

She would rather be a wholesaler than a retailer and continue to send her children to school. Finally, she thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they give to non-bankable entrepreneurs.
