Baraka Office 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 with drinks from the companies Brasimba and Bralima which will boost her initial capital.


Baraka Office Group's story

Therese is a Hekima IMF client and presides over the village group, "Baraka Office". She is 60, married and mother of five children including 3 in education and her partner is a tradesman.

She sells drinks and she began this business 20 years ago with start-up funds from her husband. Later on she joined Hekima to support her business during which time it has evolved progressively. With this new loan, she will stock up with drinks from the companies Brasimba and Bralima which will boost her initial capital. The threat to her business is a lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue studying and to be able to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to non-bankable owners of businesses during the context of this global crisis of Covid-19.
