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

A loan helped to buy 6 bags of cassava flour, which will strengthen her initial capital.

Iragi Group's story

Mrs. Esperance is a client of Hekima MFI and president of the village group "IRAGI". She is married, 44 years old and mother of 12 children, 7 of whom are in school, 5 are independent. Her partner is a farmer.

She sells cassava flour. She started this business 15 years ago with start-up funds received from her husband. Later, she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will buy 6 bags of cassava flour, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is the lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue studying and she would also like to provide for her family.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-bankable businesses in this context of the global covid-19 crisis. The photo only shows the leader of the group due to Covid-19, in compliance with social distancing measures.
