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

A loan helped to buy 70 pieces of pagnes [colorful cloth popular in West Africa], which will strengthen her initial capital.

Nyota Group's story

Madame Mamy is a client of Hekima IMF and she chairs the NYOTA village group. She is 47 yeas old, married, and the mother of 6 children, all of whom are in school. Her partner is unemployed.

She sells pagnes and started her business 10 years ago with start-up funds she received from her big sister. Later she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, which has gradually grown since then. With this new loan she plans to buy 70 pieces of pagnes, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge to her business is unpaid debts.

Madame Mamy would like to provide assistance to her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they have shown to owners of businesses that have no cash value during this global covid-19 crisis.
