Ingrid 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 ten packages of salted fish, which will reinforce her initial capital.

Ingrid Group's story

Mme Furaha is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the village group "Ingrid." She is married, 35 years old, and the mother of five children, three of whom are in school. Her partner is a motorcyclist.

She is a salted fish seller. She started this business in 2006 with startup funds received from her husband. Later she got involved in the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she progressively improved. With this new loan, she is going to acquire ten packages of salted fish, which will support her initial capital. The weakness in her business is linked to the loss and the delay in the supply of goods.

She would like for her children to continue to study and for her to develop her business. Then, she wants to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to business owners without means in the context of the global crisis linked to Covid-19.
