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

A loan helped to get fresh supplies of wholesale fried fish, which will boost her initial capital.

Saine Group's story

Claudine is a customer of Hekima IMF and president of the "Saine" group. She is 47 years old, married and mother to seven children, who are all at school. Her husband is a driver.

She sells small fried fish and began this activity four years ago with starting capital received from the Hekima program, and during this time her business has steadily progressed. With this new loan she is going to get fresh supplies of fried fish wholesale and this will boost her initial capital. The challenge in her activity relates to the global Covid-19 crisis.

She would like her children to be able to continue studying and for her to build up her business. Finally she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to business owners who cannot access classic bank funding during the Covid-19 crisis. In view of this crisis, the photo is of the group leader only.
