Sarepta 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 on Fanta, Prima, and other beverages, which will increase her starting capital.

Sarepta Group's story

Mrs. Valerie is a client of IMF Hekima and is the head of the “SAREPTA” group villageois. She is a widowed, 64-year-old mother of five, all of whom go to school. She sells diverse products, which she started doing in 2003 with funds from her deceased husband. Later, she incorporated the Hekima program to support her business, which she has been progressively growing. With this new loan, she is going to stock up on Fanta, Primus, and other beverages, which will increase her starting capital. Her business’ challenge is linked to unpaid debts. She would like for her children to continue studying, and she would like to build another building in order to have renters. In the end, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they’ve given to unmonetizable business owners in the context of this global crisis linked to COVID-19.
