Jibu 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 10 cases of beer and 2 sacks of peanuts, which will increase her starting capital.


Jibu Group's story

Mrs. Elisabeth is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the groupe villageois “JIBU.” She is a 46-year-old married mother of seven, all of whom go to school. Her partner is unemployed.

She sells food, a business she started in 2007 with her own funds. Later, she included the Hekima program to support her business, which has grown progressively. With this new loan, she is going to stock up on 10 cases of beer and 2 sacks of peanuts, which will increase her starting capital. The challenge in her business is linked to poor merchandise quality.

She would like that her children continue their education and that she buy land and grow her business. In the end, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to unmonetizable business owners in the context of the global crisis linked to COVID-19.
