A loan helped a member to buy 10 bags of rice wholesale.


Fikiri Group's story

Mrs. Zawadi is a client of the MFI Hekima and the president of Fikiri Group. She's 43 years old, married and the mother of six children, who all go to school. Her partner is an artist.

She sells food products, a business she started 7 years ago with funds received from her husband. Later on, she became involved in Hekima's program to support her business. She was able to develop it progressively.

She will use this new loan to buy 10 bags of rice wholesale, which will reinforce her capital. The main challenge of her business is merchandise piracy. She would like to expand her business and diversify her activities.

In the end, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting owners of non bankable businesses in this context of global covid-19 crisis.

Only the group leader is in the picture because of the covid-19 situation.

In this group: Zawadi, Claudine, Bifuko, Pascasie, Immaculee, Rosine, Maombi, Gisele, Materne, Alice
