Shalom 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 two bags of corn and two bags of cassava flour to strengthen her initial capital.


Shalom Group's story

Honorate is a client of the microfinance insitution Hekima and presides over the Shalom groupe villageoise. She is married, fifty-eight years old and the mother of seven children, including four who attend school and three adults. Her partner is a nurse.

She sells corn. She started this business fifteen years ago with start-up funds she received from a family member. Later she joined Hekima's program to support her business as it developed gradually. With this new loan, she will stock up on two bags of corn and two bags of cassava flour to strengthen her initial capital. Her main business challenge is a lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue their studies and to be able to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners without access to traditional banking services, especially during the global Covid-19 pandemic.
