Maserafi Group's story

Aziza is an experienced senior entrepreneur - a customer of the Hekima micro finance company with innovative initiatives. She has a restaurant in the suburbs. She also sells various items. She is 47, leader of the "Maserafi" group and mother of 11 children who all attend school.
She has recently completed 17 years in this business, and it was her husband who gave the funds to start the activity. With this new loan, she will buy 100 kgs of potatoes, 10 kgs of meat, 20 kgs of fish, 20 litres of cooking oil, 1 crate of tomatoes, 1 pack of salt, mineral water, Fanta etc - all this in order to increase her capacity to cook and serve delicious meals for her potential customers.
She is an optimist and wants to develop in this business, to accumulate a significant capital to invest, and to put her children through school.

Finally, she thanks Hekima and their partners for the support given to business-minded women without access to banking facilities. Thanks to the loans from Hekima, she takes care of her children. It should be noted that a customer is holding her baby.
