Safi Kadutu Group's story

Mrs. Angeline is a client of the Hekima MFI and the leader of the Safi Kadutu Group. She is 40 years old, married and the mother of 8 children who are all in school. Her partner is a government official. She sells hardware products. She started her business 20 years ago with start-up funds that she received from her husband. Later on, she relied on the Hekima program to support her business, which has grown well.

With this new loan, she wants to buy 5 sacks of nails in order to consolidate her initial capital. The challenge she faces in her business is the lack of customers.

She would like to see her children pursue their education and to expand her business. She wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to business owners who are unable to access bank funding in this context of global crisis resulting from Covid-19. The picture only shows the leader of the group due to compliance with Covid-19 social distancing measures.
