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

A loan helped to buy wholesale wine, which will strengthen her initial investment.

Imani Group's story

Mrs. Esperance is a customer of the Hekima IMF and head of the Imani groupe d’affaire. She is a 41-year-old widow and mother to four children who are all in school.

Mrs. Esperance sells drinks. She started this business in 1990 with the start-up funds received from her biological father. She later became involved with the Hekima program to support her business, during which time it gradually grew. With this new loan, she will stock up on wholesale wine, which will strengthen her initial investment. The challenge of her business is linked to the lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue studying. Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-cash-value businesses during this global COVID-19 crisis.
