Ephatha 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 with different types of beers which will boost her initial capital.

Ephatha Group's story

Rosine is a customer with the IMF Hekima and president of the village group, "Ephatha". She is 39, married and has seven children who are all in school and her partner is a tradesman.

She sells drinks and began this business in 2011 with start-up funds from her husband. With this new loan, she will stock up with drinks from the breweries Bralima and Brasimba which will boost her initial capital. The threat to her business comes from a lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue in education and to be able to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to owners of non-bankable businesses in the context of this global crisis linked to Covid-19.
