A loan helped to buy salted fish wholesale to strengthen her business.


Zamiri Group's story

Elizabeth is a client of the Hekima MFI and president of the banc villageois "Zamiri". Married and 35 years old, she is mother of seven children, of whom five study and two do not because of a lack of means; her partner doesn't work.

She is a seller of salted fish, having started this work in 2009 with initial funds given to her by her husband. Then she took a Hekima loan to support her work. With this new loan she will buy salted fish wholesale to build up her business. The challenge in this trade is related to a lack of customers.

She wants to educate her children and feed her family. Finally, she thanks Hekima and partners for their support of non-bankable entrepreneurs.
