Safina Group's story

Georgette is a customer of the MFI Hekima and the leader of the "banque villageoise" Safina. She is married, 48 years old, and the mother of 12 children who all attend school. Her spouse is unemployed.

She sells cassava. She started her business in 1993 with start-up funds she received from friends. Later, she joined Hekima to support her business and has been steadily progressing since.

She plans to use this new loan to buy 9 bags of cassava wholesale. Her main business challenge is linked to the purchase of bad merchandise.

She would like to see her children get an education and be able to feed her family.

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