Les Solidaires Group's story

Madame Sarah is a client of IMF Hekima and secretary of the "Les Solidaires" business group. She is married, 37 years old, and the mother of three children. Two of her children are in school and one is a baby. Her partner works for the government.

Sarah has a store where she sells food. She started this business her 2003 with startup capital from her father. Later on, she joined Hekima's program to support her business, which has grown over time.

With this new loan, she will buy liqueurs to bolster her initial capital. The challenge with her business is people who don't pay their debts.

She wants her children to continue to study and she also wants to finish construction on her home.

In closing, she wants to thank Hekima and their partners for the support they bring to non-bankable business owners—especially in the context of the COVID-19 global crisis. The photo is only of the group leader due to COVID -19 and social distancing measures.
