A loan helped a member to stock up on one sack of beans and four sacks of cassava flour in gross, so she can build up her business.


Ndarikana Group's story

Pascasie is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution and president of the Ndarikana banque villageoise. She is 36 years old and the married mother of six children, who are all in school. Her husband is a master chef.

She sells food products. She began this business in 2000 with startup money given by her husband. Later, she requested a loan from Hekima to sustain her business. With this new loan, she will stock up on one sack of beans and four sacks of cassava flour in gross, to build up her business. The downside of this job is linked to the instability of market prices.

She hopes to nourish her family. Finally, she thanks Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to unbanked entrepreneurs.
