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


A loan helped to buy forty pairs of used shoes which will reinforce her initial capital.


Shukrani Group's story

Mme Christine is a Hekima IMF client and oversees the village group SHUKRANI. She is a 55 year old widow and mother of four children. All four children attend school.

Thirty-one years ago, Mme Christine's husband, now deceased, gave her the start up fonds to start her business. Later she became involved in the Hekima programme to support her business which has progressively developed. With this new loan, she will purchase forty pairs of used shoes which will reinforce her initial capital. The challenge in her business is a lack of clients.

She would like her children to continue studying at school and to develop her business. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to non-bankable business owners in the context of the global Covid 19 crisis.
