Nzine Group's story

Mme Euphrasie is a Hekima IMF client and oversees the village group NZINE. She is married, 55 years old and the mother of five children all of whom attend school. Her spouse is a civil servant.

In 2006, she started a business with the start up funds her husband provided. She sells a variety of products. Later, she became involved in the Hekima program and over time it has progressively evolved. With this new loan, Mme Euphrasie will stock up on perfumes and clothes which will reinforce her working capital. The challenge of her business it linked to the hassles by state agents.

She would like her children to continue to study and also to develop her business. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to non-bankable business owners in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis. The photo is of the group leader only due to Covid-19 and the need to respect social distancing measures.
