Israel 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 beans, potatoes, and oil, which will reinforce her initial capital.


Israel Group's story

Mme Henriette is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the groupe villageoise Israel. She is a widow, aged 46, and the mother of eight children, five of whom are in school and three are already independent. She is a food vendor in a restaurant. She started this business ten years ago with startup funds received from a tontine. 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 beans, potatoes, and oil, which will reinforce her initial capital. The weakness in her business is linked to the lack of clientele.

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