A loan helped a member to stock up on four bags of beans, which will support her initial capital.


Enyanya Group's story

Mme Beatrice is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the groupe villageoise Enyanya. She is married, 60 years old, and the mother of four children, all of whom are in school. Her partner is unemployed.

She is a beans seller. She started this business 20 years ago with startup funds received from her father. Later, she got involved in the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she progressively improved. With this new loan, she is going to stock up on four sacks of beans, which will strengthen her initial capital. The weakness in her business is linked to the dollar rate.

She would like for her children to continue to study and to feed her family and to build. Thus, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to business-owners without means in the context of the global crisis linked to Covid-19. The photo is only of the group leader because of Covid-19 and respect for social distancing measures.
