Elikya Group's story

Mamy is a customer of the MFI Hekima and the leader of the Elikya "banque villageoise". She is married, 37 years of age, and the mother of 7 children who all attend school. Her spouse is a carpenter.

Mamy sells tablecloths and started her business 3 years ago after receiving starting funds from her husband. Later, she joined the Hekima program to get support for her business and has been gradually progressing since.

She will use her new loan to buy rolls of fabrics wholesale. Her business' main challenge is a lack of customers.

She would like to see all of her children get an education. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they give to owners of non-bankable businesses.

Note: some of the customers wanted to be with their children in the photo.
