Azuri Group's story

Nicole is a client of IMF Hekima and president of the "Azuri" groupe villageoise. She is 36 years old, married and the mother of seven children, five of whom go to school. Her partner is a businessman.

She sells chickens and started in this business in 2003 with start-up funds she got from her husband. She later joined the Hekima program to support her business. During this time she expanded progressively. With this new loan she will stock up on 45 chickens which will enhance her initial capital. The challenge in her business is having chickens dying.

She wants to help her family in everything. In closing she would like to thank Hekima and it's partners for the support provided to unbanked business owners during this global crisis provoked by COVID-19. The photo includes only the group leader due to COVID-19.
