Ardent 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 Bralima and Brasimba drinks, which will strengthen her initial capital.

Ardent Group's story

Ms. Yvone, 47, is a client of the IMF Hekima and presides over the business group 'Ardent'. She is married and a mother of seven children, all of whom go to school. Her partner is a teacher. The photo only shows the group leader due to Covid-19.

Yvone sells drinks — she has been in this business for 4 years with the startup funds received from her husband. Later, she was involved with the Hekima program to support her business during which time she has progressively grown.

With this new loan, she is going to stock up on Bralima and Brasimba beers which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge in this activity is linked to outstanding debts.

Yvone would like her children to continue their studies, and for her to develop her business. Finally, she wants to thank Hekima and its partners for their support towards non-bankable entrepreneurs in the context of the Covid-19 global crisis.
