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

A loan helped to stock up on cassava, corn, soybeans, and mustard to strengthen her initial capital.

Neemisha Group's story

Gorette is a client of Hekima and chairs the "Neemisha" business group. She is married, 40 years old, and mother of nine children who all attend school. Her partner is a merchant.

Gorette is a food vendor. She started this business 15 years ago with start-up funds received from her field. Later she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of while she has progressively evolved. With this new loan, she will stock up on cassava, corn, soybeans, and mustard, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to price instability in the market.

Gorette would like for her children to continue their studies and to build a house. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of non-bankable business owners in the context of the global crisis linked to COVID-19.
