Amour De Dieu 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 flour, semolina, Omo detergent, oil and sugar which will strengthen her initial capital.

Amour De Dieu Group's story

Ms. Pascasie, 53, is a client of the microfinance institute Hekima, and manages the village group 'Amour de Dieu'. She is married, and a mother of 7 children who are all in school. Her partner is a civil servant.

Pascasie sells a variety of products. She started this business in 1997 with the start-up funds received from her father-in-law. Later, she became involved with the Hekima program to support her business, during which time she gradually developed it.

With this new loan, Pascasie will stock up on flour, semolina, Omo (detergent) and sugar which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge in this business is state taxes.

Pascasie would like her children to continue studying and for her to continue building a house. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support towards non-bankable entrepreneurs in this context of the global Covid-19 crisis.
