Hodari Group's story

Marie Jeanne is a client of IMF Hekima and president of the "Hodari " banque villageoise. She is a 46 year old widow and the mother of seven children. Three go to school and four are independent.

She is a vendor of food products. She started her business in 1996 with start-up funds she received as support from from her family after her husband died. 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 fry, rice and flour to enhance her initial capital. The challenge in her business comes from theft and the dollar exchange.

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.
