Ibrahim Group's story

Mme Catherine is a client of Hekima IMF and the head of the business group "IBRAHIM". She is married, 43 years old and the mother of six children, 4 of them attend school and the other two are not yet of school age. Her spouse is a state agent.

Mme Catherine sells used clothing which is a business she began in 2000 with the start up funds provided by her husband. Later she became involved with the Hekima program to support her business and over time her business has progressed. With this current loan, she will buy five bales of used clothing which will reinforce her initial capital. The challenge of her business is tied to a lack of clients.

She would like her children to continue attending school, to feed her family and to build a house. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the supported given to non-bankable business owners in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis.
