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


A loan helped to buy sheets, cement, and triplexes, which will strengthen her initial capital.


Together Group's story

Mrs. Bernadette is a client of the Hekima IMF and head of the Together business group. She is married, 50 years old and mother of seven children, five who go to school and two who have finished. Her partner is a trader.

Mrs. Bernadette sells hardware products. She started this business eight years ago with the start-up funds received from her husband. She later got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, during which time it gradually grew. With this new loan, she will buy sheets, cement, and triplexes, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to the lack of customers.

She would like to feed her family and for her children to continue studying. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-cash-converting businesses during this time of the global COVID-19 crisis.
