A loan helped a member to buy two pigs, which will build upon her initial capital.


Maranatha Group's story

Bernadette is a Hekima IMF client who leads the village group Maranatha. She is forty years old and divorced with five children, all of whom attend school.

She has been a pork seller since she was twenty-three, when she started her business with start-up funds she received from her father. Later she got involved in the Hekima program to support her business, which she gradually grew. With this new loan, she will buy two pigs, which will build upon her initial capital. Her business has no problems.

Bernadette would like to build a house. She would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to owners of non-cash-value businesses in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis. Bernadette is the only group member in the photo due to Covid-19 protocols.
