Imani Group's story

Madame Jeanette is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and vice president of the Imani Group. She is 50 years old, married, and has 4 children who are all in school. Her husband is unemployed.

Jeanette has been selling women's and children's clothing for 15 years. She used funds she received from a tontine to start her business. Later, she got involved in the Hekima lending program to support her business. With this new loan, she will purchase women's and children's clothing in bulk to increase her starting capital. Her main challenge is finding customers.

She hopes to put her children through school and feed her family. Lastly, Jeanette thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to non-bankable entrepreneurs.
