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


A loan helped to buy six sacks of flour and one container of oil for producing bread, which will strengthen her initial capital.


La Force Group's story

Immaculee is a client with the microfinance institution Hekima and represents the groupe villageoise La Force. She is 26 years old, married and has four children who are all enrolled in school; her partner is a driver.

She established her business selling bread three years ago using start-up funds she received from her husband. Later she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, which has been developing progressively. With this new loan, she will stock up on six sacks of flour and one container of oil for producing bread, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to the competition in the market.

She would like her children to continue their studies and wants to develop her business. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support shown to business owners without access to traditional banking facilities in the context of the global crisis caused by covid-19.
