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

A loan helped to stock up on wooden boards and reinforce her startup capital.

Safari Group's story

Madame Dorcas is a client of Hekima MFI and president of her borrowing group, Safari. Married and 35 years old, she is the mother of eight children who are all in school. Her spouse is a driver.

She sells wooden boards in her store and started this business 16 years ago with start-up funding received from her husband. Later, she requested a loan from Hekima to support her business. With this new loan, she will stock up on boards in bulk and will be able to reinforce her startup capital. She doesn't have any challenges in her business.

She wants to ensure her children can go to school. In closing, she also would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to clients who aren't able to borrow from banks.
