A loan helped a member to stock up on 20 bags of flour, which will reinforce her initial capital.


Amani Group's story

Mrs. Denise is a client with the micro-lending institution Hekima, and the leader of the Groupe Villageoise "Amani". She is married, 37 years old, and the mother of 4 children who all attend school. Her partner is a mechanic.

Mrs. Denise sells flour, a career that she initiated 9 years ago with startup funds from her husband. She later enlisted help from Hekima to support her business, which has progressively evolved. With this new loan, she will stock up on 20 bags of flour in order to reinforce her initial capital. The challenge she faces with her business is associated with a lack of places to buy supplies.

In the future, she would like to renovate her home. She also wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to small business owners in the context of the global covid-19 crisis. The photo only depicts the group leader due to covid-19.
