Afya Group's story

Ms. Esta is a customer of IMF Hekima and the leader of the Afya village group. She is married, 58 years old and has ten children, four of whom are in school and six are already independent. Her husband is unemployed.

Esta works selling fruits. She launched this business two years ago with starting funds received from her husband. Later on she joined the Hekima program to support her business, and has been growing it steadily. With this new loan, Esta will stock up on avocados, oranges, bananas, lemons, and tomatoes, bolstering her initial capital. Her business is not facing any issues.

Esta would like to ensure that her children continue their studies as well as to provide for her family. In conclusion, Esta sincerely thanks Hekima and its partners for supporting entrepreneurs who lack financing, especially at this time of a global crisis caused by Covid-19.
