but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to stock up on food items such as rice, flour, oil, and juice, bolstering her initial capital.

She is divorced, 43 years old and has five children, four of whom are in school and one has already graduated. Justine sells various food items. She launched this business in 2009 with the starting funds received from her family. Later o,n she joined the Hekima program to support her business, and has been developing it gradually.

With this new loan, Justine will stock up on food items such as rice, flour, juice, etc, bolstering her initial capital. Her business challenge is linked to state taxes. Justine would like her children to continue their education. She would also like to build a house. In conclusion, Justine thanks Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners who lack funding, especially at this time of a global crisis caused by Covid-19.
