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

A loan helped to buy salt fish wholesale, which will boost her starting capital.

Bonheur Group's story

Madam Bernadette is a client with Hekima and the president of village group "Bonheur". She is a 58-year old widow and has six children, including two attending school and four already grown.
She sells salt fish, a business she started 25 years ago with seed money she received from her older sister. Subsequently, she turned to Heklima to support her business which grew progressively. With this new loan, she will purchase salt fish wholesale, which will boost her starting capital. Her business challenges are due to government taxes.
She would like to be able to cover her rent and for her children to continue their education. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to non bankable business owners during this global crisis caused by Covid-19. Only the group leader is pictured to observe social distancing guidelines connected to Covid-19.
