Uaminifu Kwetu Group's story

Madame Jolie is a client of Hekima IMF, and she is the president of the banc villageois "Uaminifu Kwetu." She is married, 29 years old, and is the mother of 4 children, 3 of whom are in school. Her husband is a merchant.

Madame Jolie has a business selling flour. She started this business 8 years ago with start-up funds from her husband. Later, she got involved in the Hekima program to support her business, and as a result she gradually grew the business.

With this new loan, Madame Jolie will buy 100 sacks of cassava flour to strengthen her initial capital. The challenge she faces with her business is having insufficient capital.

Madame Jolie would like to see her children continue in school, and she wants to feed the family and do some construction projects. Finally, she wants to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to business owners unable to access banking services in the context of this Covid-19 crisis.
