A loan helped a member to stock up on cement and to reinforce her starting capital.

Shekina Renove Group's story

Madame Fany is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution and oversees the Shekina Renove groupe villageoise. She is single and 25 years old.

She sells hardware products and started this business in 2018 with funding received from her fiancé. Later, she joined the Hekima program to support her business, which she was steadily growing. With this new loan, she will stock up on cement, which will reinforce her starting capital. The challenge in her business can be due to a lack of customers.

She would love to buy a plot of land. Lastly, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to owners of small businesses that don't have monetary value in the context of this global crisis tied to COVID-19.
