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

A loan helped to buy 10 boxes of duplicator papers, pens, dividers and Bristol paper, which will strengthen her initial capital.

Zihana Group's story

Ms. Mady is a client of Hekima IMF and leads the village group “ZIHANA”. She is married, 44 years old and the mother of 9 children who are all in school. Her partner is unemployed. She sells stationery products. She started this business in 1995 with the start-up funds received from her husband. Later she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually grew.

With this new loan, she will stock up on 10 boxes of duplicating paper, pens, dividers and, Bristol paper, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is the lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue studying and to feed her family.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and theirs partners for the support provided to owners of non-bankable businesses in this context of the global covid-19 crisis. The photo only shows the leader of the group due to covid-19 in compliance with social distancing measures.
