Club D'amis 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 beverages from Bralima and Brasimba which will increase her working capital.

Club D'amis Group's story

Mme Ortance is a client of Hekima IMF and leads the groupe villageoise, Club D'Amis. She is a 42 year-old widow and the mother of seven children, who are all in school. She has been selling food since 2007 using the start-up capital she received from her now-deceased husband.

Recently she joined the program with Hekima to support her business and with which she has been steadily evolving. With this new loan, she plans to stock-up on beverages from Bralima and Brasima which will increase her working capital. Her business does not any problems.

She would like for her children to continue their studies, to be able to provide food for her family, and to buy a piece of land. She would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of entrepreneurs who do not have access to banking services in this context of a global crisis linked to COVID-19.
