A loan helped a member to buy smoked fish in bulk, which will strengthen her initial capital.


La Victoire Bujovu Group's story

Mrs. Gloire is a client of the Hekima IMF and chairs the La Victoire Bujovu groupe villageoise. She is married, 38 years old and the mother of seven children, three who are educated and no longer have a lack of means. Her partner is a mason.

Mrs. Gloire is a fish seller. She started this business 10 years ago with the start-up funds received from her parents. She later got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, during which time it gradually grew. With this new loan, she will buy smoked fish in bulk, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business activity is linked to the harassment of the police.

She would like her children to continue studying and to buy a plot. Finally, Mrs. Gloire would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-cash-converting businesses during this global COVID-19 crisis. The photo is only of the group leader in compliance with COVID-19 social distancing measures.
