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

A loan helped to buy 4 boxes of thermos and 2 boxes of cooking pots.

Josue Group's story

Mrs. Aimerance is a client of the MFI Hekima and the president of Josue Group. She's 45 years old, married and the mother of six children, including one who passed away and five who go to school. Her partner is a mechanic.

She sells plates, a business she started seven years ago with startup funds received from her husband. Later on, she involved Hekima's program to support her business, which enabled her to evolve progressively.

She will use this new loan to buy 5 boxes of thermos and 2 boxes of cooking pots, which will strengthen her working capital. Her business' main challenge is linked to the lack of customers. She would like to be able to feed her family and have her children continue to study.

In the end, she would like to thank Hekiam and its partners for supporting owners of non bancable businesses in this context of global crisis linked to Covid-19.

Only the group's leader is featured in the photograph due to Covid-19 and social distancing.
