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

A loan helped to buy cassava.

St Luc Group's story

Claudine is a client of the micro-finance institution Hekima and the president of the village group "St. Luc." She is married, 47 years old, and a mother of nine children, who are all in school. Her partner is a humanitarian worker.

Claudine sells cassava paste, called chikwangue; a business she started two years ago with funds she received from her husband. Later, she joined Hekima to support her business, which is developing progressively. With this new loan, she is going to buy cassava, which will increase her initial capital. Her business has no challenges.

Claudine wishes to feed her family and see her children continue in school.

Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and their partners for their support to business owners who lack access to banking services during this COVID-19 global crisis.
