Sainte Vierge Marie Group's story

Mrs. Yvette is a client of IMF Hekima and president of the village group named « Saint Virgin Mary» ; She is married, aged 54 and mother of five children who all attend school. Her partner is a salesman.

She sells hardware goods. She started this business 10 years ago with start-up funds that her husband gave her. Later, she joined the Hekima program to support her business. This enabled her to progress steadily. With her new loan, she will stock up on cement, locks, cables and tires to reinforce her initial capital. The challenge in her business is the closing of borders due to covid-19.

She wants her children to continue to study and she would like to develop her business.

Finally, she wants to thank Hekima and their partners for their support for non bankable business owners in the present context of global crisis due to covid-19. The photo only shows the leader of the group in the respect of social distancing measures against covid-19.
