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

A loan helped to buy a wholesale supply of eggs, which will reinforce her initial capital.

Chirhonde Group's story

Madame Rosette is a client of the Hekima IMF and presides over the Chorhonde village group. She is married, 29 years old and the mother of two children who are both in school. Her partner is unemployed.

She sells eggs, and started this business in 2016 with start up funds from her husband. Later she turned to the Hekima program to support her business, and has progressed gradually since. With this new loan, she will buy a wholesale stock of eggs, which will reinforce her initial capital. The challenge of her business is egg breakage.

Madame Rosette would like for her children to continue their studies, and to develop her business. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to business owners who are not bankable due to circumstances related to the global Covid-19 crisis.
