Asifiwe Group's story

Adidja is a customer of the MFI Hekima and the leader of the "banque villageoise" Asifiwe. She is married, 41 years old, and the mother of 5 children who all attend school. Her spouse is a carpenter.

She sells household goods. She started her business in 2018 with start-up funds she received from Hekima and has been progressing steadily since.

She plans to use this new loan to buy mattresses, appliances, beds, and chairs. Her main business challenge lies in avoiding buying poor merchandise.

She would like to see her children get an education and she would like to be able to build a wooden house.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they give to non-bankable business owners.
