Arche De Noe Group's story

Esther is a client of the Hekima Microfinance Institution and presides over the village group «Arche De Noe». She is married, aged 50 years and the mother of 6 children, 4 of whom are at school. Her partner is unemployed.

She sells beverages and started this business in 1994 with startup funding from her husband. Later she joined the Hekima Program to have support for her business. During this time she progressively evolved. With this new loan, she will stock up with 20 crqtes of beer to strengthen her initial capital. The challenge facing her business is the lack of customers.

She would like to have her own home and be able to feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of business owners who are not making money in the current global crisis linked to covid-19.
