A loan helped to stock up on 200 bags of charcoal, which will strengthen her initial capital.


Ebenezer Group's story

Ms. Cessile is a client of Hekima IMF and treasurer of the village group “EBENEZER”. She is married, 46 years old and the mother of 4 children who are all in school, her partner is out of work.

She is a seller of charcoal, she started this business 5 years ago with the start-up funds received from her brother. Later she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which it has gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will stock up on 200 bags of charcoal, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to the poor state of the road to bring the stock.

She would like her children to continue studying and to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non marketable businesses in this context of the global Covid-19 crisis.
