A loan helped a member to purchase mattresses, which strengthens her initial capital.


Shauri Iii Group's story

Madame Ciza is a client of the Hekima IMF and leads the village group Shauri III. She is married, age 48 and mother of five children who are all in school. Her spouse is a trader.

She sells a variety of items. She started her business in 1998 with startup funds received from her husband. Later, she joined the Hekima program to support her business, and she has continued to grow it. With this new loan, she will purchase mattresses, which will reinforce her initial capital. The challenge for her business is related to a lack of capital.

She would like for her children to continue to attend school and to develop her business. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to unbanked business owners during the global crisis linked to COVID-19. The photo is only of the group leader to respect social distancing measures.
