Afya Group's story

Madame Esta is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution and leader of the Afya banque villageoise. She is married, 56 years old, and has 8 children who are all in school. Her partner is unemployed.

She sells fruit and started her business 9 years ago with funding received from the Hekima program to support her activities, which she was steadily growing. With this new loan, she will stock up on fruit in bulk, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenges she faces in her business are linked to damaged or spoiled fruit.

She would like for her children to go to school and to do some construction. Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to owners of business that are unable to use traditional banks.
