A loan helped a member to buy ten cases of Primus wholesale, which will support her initial capital.


Amka Group's story

Mme Agnes is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the banque villageoise Amka. She is married, 59 years old, and the mother of six children, all of whom are in school. Her partner is a teacher.

She is a beverage vender. She started this business in 2008 with startup funds from her husband. Later she got involved in the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she progressively improved. With this new loan she is going to acquire ten cases of Primus wholesale, which will support her initial capital. This weakness in her business is linked to unpaid debts.

She would like to do construction and to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business-owners without means during the global crisis from Covid-19. The photo is only of the group leader due to Covid-19.
