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

A loan helped to buy 100 lengths of fabric and other sewing supplies.

Zawadi Group's story

Leontine is a customer of the MFI Hekima and the president of the village group Zawadi. She's 61 years old, divorced and the mother of three children, who all go to school. She's a tailor, a business she started at the age of 26 with funds received from her mother. Later on, she involved Hekima's program to support her business, which enabled her to evolve progressively.

She will use this new loan to buy 100 lengths of fabric and other sewing supplies, which will strengthen her initial capital. Her business doesn't face any problem. She would like to build on her land lot.

In the end, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting owners of non bankable businesses in this context of global crisis in connection with Covid-19.

Only the leader of the group is present on the photograph because of Covid-19 and to respect the social distancing.
