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

A loan helped to get supplies of wholesale meat, which will boost her initial capital.

Ishara Group's story

Marthe is a customer of Hekima IMF and president of the Ishara Groupe Villageoise. She is a 55-year-old widow and mother to ten children, four of whom are at school and six autonomous.

She sells meat and began this business 20 years ago with starting capital received from her husband. Later on she joined the Hekima program to support her business, which she has developed during this time.

With this new loan she is going to get fresh supplies of wholesale meat, which will boost her starting capital. There are no challenges to overcome in her business.

She would like to see her children continue studying and be able to pay her rent. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to business owners, who have no access to bank funding in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis. As a result of the latter and in order to respect social distancing measures, the photo is of the group leader only.
