Olame Ndame Ii Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to purchase 15 bags of semolina flour that will strengthen her initial capital.

Olame Ndame Ii Group's story

Aline is a client with the MFI, Hekima, and runs the village group, "Olame Ndame II." She is married, 36 years old, and a mother of 8 children who are all in school. Her partner is a shopkeeper.

She sells various foods. She started this business 9 years ago with start-up funds from her husband. She later became involved with the Hekima program to support her business, which has grown progressively.

With this new loan, she will purchase 15 bags of semolina flour, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge her business faces is linked to the increasing dollar rate.

She would like her children to continue studying and to develop her business.

Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to business owners who do not have access to traditional banking facilities in the context of the Covid-19 global crisis.
