Sarepta Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to buy Primus and Fanta juice in bulk so as to consolidate her initial capital.

Sarepta Group's story

Mrs. Valerie is a client of the Hekima MFI and the leader of the Sarepta "banc villageois". She is a 63 year old widow and the mother of 5 children who have all completed their education.

She sells various drinks. She started that business in 2000 with starting funds she had received from her late husband. Subsequently, she used the Hekima program to support the business that she developed progressively. With this new loan, she will buy Primus and Fanta juices in bulk, which will help her consolidate her initial capital. Her biggest challenge is to pay the unpaid debts during this global crisis.

She wishes to expand her business. She thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they offer to business owners without access to credit in this context of a global crisis linked to Covid-19. The picture only shows the leader of the group because of Covid-19 restrictions.
