Mufariji Group's story

Antoinnette is a retailer, an advisor to the "Mufarji" banque villageoise and a client of IMF Hekima. Aged 60, she is a married mother of 5 children, all of whom are in education. She sells foodstuffs from her city home. Antoinnette plans to buy 4 sacks of corn to bolster her business. She began this business with the capital she received from her husband 16 years ago. She wishes to buy a plot of land and to educate and feed her children. Ultimately, she thanks Hekima for the support it has provided to entrepreneurs otherwise without access to bank credit. It is noted that some of the clients pictured are holding their babies.
