Fondation Ndarikana 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 supplies of carbonated beverages and beers such as Bralima and Brasimba in order to strengthen her initial capital.

Fondation Ndarikana Group's story

Mrs. Pascasia is a customer of the microlending institution Hekima and the leader of the Banc Villageoise "Fondation Ndarikana". She is 39 years old and married to a chef. She is the mother of seven children, six of whom attend school (one is an infant).

Mrs. Pascasia sells beverages and began her business 14 years ago with startup funds received from her husband. Later on, she requested financial support from Hekima to build up her enterprise. With this new loan, she will stock up on beverages and beers such as Bralima and Brasimba to strengthen her initial financial capital. The major challenge she faces is linked to a lack of customers.

She would like for her children to continue their studies, and also seeks to be able to provide for her family. She thanks Hekima and its lending partners for the support they give to entrepreneurs without access to traditional banking services, particularly in the context of the global COVID-19 crisis.
