A loan helped to purchase cassava leaves, beans, and peas.

Plamedi Group's story

Madame Jeanine is a client of microfinance institution Hekima and leader of the Plamedi Group. She is 39 years old and has 8 children, 6 of whom are in school. Her partner is a teacher. Only the group leader is shown due to social distancing measures.

Jeanine sells vegetables, a business she started 12 years ago with startup funds from her husband. Later, she partnered with Hekima to support her business, and it has grown progressively since. With this new loan, she will purchase cassava leaves, beans, and peas, thereby increasing her working capital. Her main challenge is lack of customers.

She would love for her children to continue their studies and to feed her family. Lastly, Jeanine would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they give to owners of non-bankable businesses in the context of the Covid-19 crisis.
