Plamedi Group's story

Jeanine is a client of Hekima IMF and is the leader of the borrowing group Plamedi. She is married, 42 years old and the mother of 9 children, of whom 5 go to school, one has finished and 3 are independent. Her partner is a teacher.

She sells fruits and vegetables and started this business 8 years ago with start-up funds from her husband. Later on, she turned to Hekima to support her business, while it gradually expanded. With this new loan, she will buy fruits and vegetables in bulk, which will increase her stock. The challenge in her business is the lack of customers.

She would like for her children to continue to go to school and to be able to feed her family. She would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the non-monetary support given to business owners.
