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


A loan helped to buy stock of 80 boxes of soaps, which will boost her initial capital.


Shekinah Group's story

Mme Claudine is a client of IMF Hekima and Treasurer for the village bank 'Shekina'. She is 27 years old, a widow and has an infant child.

She works selling soaps, which she has been doing for two years with start-up funds received from her deceased husband. She then joined the Hekima program to support her business, which has since been steadily growing. With this new loan, she will buy stock of 80 boxes of soaps, which will boost her initial capital. Her business is not currently facing any problems.

She hopes to grow her business. In closing, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to business owners who cannot access other means of financing in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis. The photo is just of the group leader due to Covid-19.
