A loan helped to buy bananas, plums, oranges, and avocados which will strengthen her starting capital.


Afya Group's story

Esta is a client of Hekima IMF and the leader of groupe villageoise Afya. She is married, 52 years old, and has seven children. Four of her children are in school, three are independent, and her partner is unemployed.

She sells fruits and vegetables. She started this business two years ago with start-up capital that she received from her husband. Later, she approached Hekima to support her business and it's evolving gradually. She is requesting a new loan to buy bananas, plums, oranges, and avocados which will strengthen her starting capital. The challenges she faces are tied to spoiled goods.

Esta would love for her children to continue going to school. She would also love to feed her family and start construction. She would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they've given to unbankable business owners during this global crisis linked to COVID-19.
