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

A loan helped to stock up on forty kilograms of beans at wholesale prices to strengthen her initial capital.

Les Cheribins Group's story

Yvonne is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the "Les Cheribins" banque villageoise. She is married, fifty-eight years old and the mother of eight children who all attend school. Her husband is unemployed.

She sells beans in a warehouse. She started this business in 2011 with start-up funds received from her field in the village. Later on, she joined Hekima's program to support her business as it developed gradually. With this new loan, she will stock up on forty kilograms of beans at wholesale prices, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to bad road conditions in agricultural deserts.

She would like her children to go to school and to develop her business. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting unbankable business owners.
The clients prefer to be photographed with their children.
