Shukrani Group's story

Madame Christine is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution and the president of the Shukrani banc villageois. She is 44 years old and has seven children, all of whom attend school. She has a home business selling yoghurt and Bralima brand fizzy drinks, which she started up with funds from her husband. Happy with her business, she is going to purchase 12 containers of yoghurt and 20 cases of fizzy drink, which includes transport costs, with the loan. Her future ambition is to pay for all her children to attend university. She is very grateful to Hekima and its partners, who have good intentions in their financial support of the people excluded from the financial sector.
