Azuri 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 50 chickens, which will reinforce her initial capital.

Azuri Group's story

Mme Nicole is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the village group "Azuri". She is married, 36 years old, and the mother of seven children, six of whom are in school and one is still a baby. Her partner is a vendor.

She is a chicken seller. She started this business five years ago 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 stock up on fifty chickens, which will reinforce her initial capital. The weakness in her business is linked to police harassment.

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