A loan of $3,375 helps a member to buy 2 bags of beans.


Ndarikana Group's story

Pascasie is a customer of the MFI Hekima and the leader of the "Ndarikana" village group. She is married, 36 years old, and the mother of 7 children, 6 of whom attend school (one is still too young). Her husband is a cook.

She sells beans. She started her business 18 years ago with funds she received from her husband. Later, she joined Hekima's loan program to get support for her business which is steadily developing. She will use this new loan to buy 2 bags of beans. Her main business challenge is dealing with the dollar exchange rate.

She would like to be able to keep feeding her family.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they give to owners of non-bankable businesses, especially during the global crisis caused by Covid-19.

Note: Due to covid-19 safety precautions, only the group leader is pictured.

In this group: Tantine, Jacqueline, Esperance, Pascasie, Immaculee, Keonnie, Deborah, Viviane, Josephine, Alphonsine, Christelle, Faustin, Nzele, Salome, Rosalie, Janvier, Noella, Marie, Elizabeth, Fabrice, Jules
