Linda Azina Group's story

Nathalie is a client with Hekima and runs the village group, "Linda Azina." She is married, 30 years old, and mother to 3 children who are all in school. Her husband is a state employee.

She sells various products. She started this business 10 years ago with start-up funds from her husband. She later joined Hekima to support her business, which has grown gradually. With this new loan, she is going to buy juice, cookies, and Bralima and Brasimba beers, which with strengthen her initial capital. The challenge her business faces is unpaid debts.

She would like her children to continue to study and to build her plot.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners without access to traditional banking facilities in this global crisis related to Covid-19.
