A loan helped a member to stock up with planks, which will boost her initial capital.

Juvenal Group's story

Anuarite is a customer of Hekima IMF and president of the "Juvenal" Village Group. She is married, 39 years old and mother to five children, three of whom are at school, while the two others are younger. Her husband is a trader.

She sells planks and began this business ten years ago with starting capital received from her husband. Later on she joined the Hekima program to support her business, which during this time has developed steadily.

With this new loan she is going to stock up with planks, which will boost her initial capital. The challenge in her business is the lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue studying and also to build a house. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to business owners who do not have access to funding in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis.

In this group: Jean De Dieu, Anuarite, Chantal, Domitila, Martine, Babi, Christine, Martha, Florida, Gisele, Zena , Mireille, Josue, Leontina, Nenette
