Assurance Group's story

Mme Marie is a client of the Hekima MFI and the leader of the "banc villageois" Assurance. She is 42 years old, separated from her husband and has one child who is in school. For the past 8 years, she has been selling beverages with a start-up fund given to her by her ex-husband. Later on, she was granted a loan by Hekima to support her business. She will use this new loan to buy wholesale beverages to support her business. The major challenge she faces in her business is selling on credit.

She wishes to build a concrete house and to send her child to school. She thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to entrepreneurs who cannot access bank financing.
