A loan helped to stock up on potatoes.

Jibu Group's story

Mrs. Leonie is a client of the Hekima MFI and the president of the JIBU group. She is 60 years old and married with 11 school-educated children; her spouse has a commercial activity.

Leonie sells food products. She launched this acivity 10 years ago with startup funds supplied by her husband. She eventually joined Hekima to help sustain her business which grew gradually. This new loan will help her to stock up on potatoes.

Her main challenge is the lack of customers.

She wants her children to continue their studies.

She wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for helping non-bankable business owners during the global covid-19 crisis. Because of the pandemic, only the group leader appears in the photo.
