She sells beans. She started this business 10 years ago with the startup funding received from her husband. Later she joined the Hekima programme to support her business. During this time, she evolved progressively. With this new loan, she will purchase 15 bags of beans, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge she faces in her activity is caused by accidents that happen.

She would like for her children to continue their studies and to build a house. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to business owners who don't have cash flow in this global crisis caused by Covid-19.
