Dieu Merci Group's story

Therese is a customer of the MFI Hekima and the leader of the Dieu Merci group. She is married, 51 years old, and the mother of 5 children who attend school. Her partner is a nurse.

She sells pharmaceutical products. She started her business 25 years ago with funds she received from her husband. Later, she joined Hekima's loan program to support her business, which has gradually developed. She will use the new loan to buy generic and specialist medicines. Her main business challenge is a lack of customers.

She would like to see her children continue with their education and to be able to feed her family.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they are giving to owners of non-bankable businesses during this Covid-19 pandemic.
