Sifa Mpya Group's story

Odile is a client of IMF Hekima IMF and president of the "Sifa Mpya" groupe villageoise. She is 50 years old, married and is the mother of six children, all of whom go to school. Her partner is a driver.

She sells spices and she started in this business 20 years ago with funds she received from her husband. Later she joined the Hekima program to support her business. During which time she has developed it progressively. With this new loan she will stock up on oil, flavouring, flour, laundry detergent and drinks to enhance her initial capital. The challenge in her business comes from a lack of customers.

She wants her children to continue their studies and to be able to feed her family. In closing she would like to thank Hekima and it's partners for the support provided to unbanked business owners during this time of global crisis brought on by COVID-19.
