Salama Group's story

Appoline is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the "banque villageoise" « SALAMA ». She is married, 42 years old and the mother of six children, who are all in school. Her partner is a driver.
She is a "pagnes" (traditional cloth wraps) seller. She started this business 10 years ago with start up funds received from the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she has progressively evolved. With this new loan she is going to stock up with 20 "pagnes" pieces which will reinforce her initial capital. The challenge of her business is tied to unpaid debts.
She would like her children to go to school and to feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to nonbankable business owners.
