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

A loan helped to buy pagnes (traditional cloth), sugar, detergent, cookies, breads, and water in bulk, which enhance her starting capital.

Farijika Group's story

Mme Genevieve is a client with MFI Hekima and the president of the local group Farijika. She is 58 years old, married and the mother of eight children including four who are married and four attending school. Her partner is a shopkeeper.

She sells various items and started this business three years ago with seed money resulting from renting out some properties. Subsequently, she joined Hekima to support her business which has been growing progressively. With this new loan, she will purchase pagnes, sugar, detergent, cookies, breads and water in bulk, which will enhance her starting capital. The issue she faces in her business is unpaid debt.
She would like for her children to attend school and build a permanent house. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to non bankable entrepreneurs.
