Bahogwere 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 40 measures of pagne cloth, which will strengthen her initial capital.


Bahogwere Group's story

Fifi is a client with the microfinance institution Hekima and is group representative of the banque villageoise Bahogwere. She is 47 years old, married and has four children who are all enrolled in school. Her partner is a doctor.

She has been in business selling pagne cloth for nine years, using start-up funding she received from her husband. Later she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, which has been developing progressively. With this new loan, she will buy a supply of 40 measures of pagne cloth, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to the lack of clients due to covid-19.

She would like her children to continue their studies. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support shown to business owners without access to traditional banking facilities in the context of the global crisis caused by covid-19.
