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

A loan helped to buy nails, which will strengthen her initial capital.

Safi Kadutu Group's story

Madam Angeline is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution and presides over the Safi Kadutu village group. She is 45 years old, married, and has 10 children who are all in school. Her husband is a teacher, and she sells hardware products.

She started this business 5 years ago with start-up capital from her husband. She later involved the Hekima programme to support her business, during which it gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will stock up on nails, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge her business faces is linked to the lack of customers she has during the rainy season.

She would like to develop her business and for her children to continue studying. Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to owners of unbanked businesses during the global COVID-19 crisis.
