Amani Bagira Group's story

Madame Jeannine is a client of the Hekima IMF and presides over the Amani Bagira village group. She is married, 55 years old and the mother of 5 children who are all in school.

Her partner is a teacher.

She sells foods, and started this business in 1990 with start up funds from her husband. Later she turned to the Hekima program to support her business, and has since progressed gradually. With this new loan, she will buy a supply of 50 sacks of flour, which will reinforce her initial capital. The challenge of her business is related to the exchange rate.

Madame Jeannine would like for her children to continue their studies, and to develop her business and buy a parcel of land. 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.
